Description

Kirinyaga Njeruri Estate AB – Kenya

Njeruri Estate is a 2.5 hectare farm in Njukiini town, located within the county of Kirinyaga. The farm was established in the 1960’s, and today is owned by Esther Wangere. She’s been working with Coffee Management Systems (“CMS”), who help small farmers with agronomy training and financing, as well as market access (in this case through C. Dorman). This area is known for coffee production, rich in well drained, volcanic soil, and access to the high altitude zones of the Aberdare mountain range. The coffee is wet processed at the farm, where it is depulped and fermented overnight, then undergoes a clean-water soak where the remaining fruit is washed away. This is often referred to as “double washed”, and is typical in Kenya. The coffee is dried on raised beds for upwards of two weeks before being transported to the dry mill where the outer parchment husk is removed. Njeruri farm sits at 1700 meters above sea level and is planted in SL-28, and Ruiru 11.

Screen sizing in Kenya

The AA, AB and other grades used to classify lots in Kenya are an indication of screen size only. They are not any indication of cup quality. The AA grade in Kenya is equivalent to screen size 17 or 18 (17/64 or 18/64 of an inch) used at other origins. AA grades often command higher prices at auction though this grade is no indication of cup quality and an AB lot from a better farm may cup better. PB (denoting Peaberry) is the smallest screen size.
