WAHUNDURA is the platonic ideal of a washed Kenyan coffee. Sparkly grapefruit acidity? Check. Sweet hints of darjeeling and stonefruit? You betcha. If you tend to like the Kenyas that we bring in around this time of year, you will almost certainly be impressed with this brand new offering.

The namesake of this coffee, the Wahundura Factory, is one of 4 wet mills owned and operated by Kamacharia Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS). Over 1,100 smallholder farmers contribute ripe cherry to Wahundura. Farmers cultivate Ruiru 11 and SL28 at 1,600 to 1,800 meters above sea level in Murang'a county.

After selective handpicking, cherry is delivered to the factory. At intake, a cherry clerk ensures that only ripe, red cherry is accepted. Accepted cherry is pulped on a disc pulper and is then fermented for 16 to 24. After being washed in clean water, parchment is soaked in fresh water for an additional 24 hours. Parchment is dried on raised beds for 18 to 24 days. Dried parchment is milled at a dry mill called Kahawa Bora.
