It is a mix of SL varieties commonly planted and grown by a farmer group located mostly in Kyonza, and a sub county of Kanungu. This lot was produced from cherries that were picked over a period between October and December, 2019. These cherries are floated then pulped by a Penagos Eco-Pulper, but bypassing the demucilager, keeping all mucilage on the parchment. From there the coffee goes to a tank for fermentation before it is carefully dried on raised tables, partially under shade and cover from the rain.
This mix of SL varieties feel like black tea with fruits, particularly peach and apricot. It is sweet, fruity and light bodied.
Cupping score: 86 points.
