Kenya - Boma Peaberry
Roast Profile:- Medium/Light
Boma wetmill is part of the eponymous Boma Farmers’ Cooperative Society Ltd, one of two washing stations or “factories” that form the coop group based in the heartland of Kericho county, in Kenya's rift valley. The mill processes cherries sourced from 251 farmers. Individual trees yielding between 5 and 10kg of cherries per season and the coop produces approximately 600 mt per year.
The coffee is wet-processed, where the fully ripe cherries are:
● Fermented for 12 - 48 hours (depending on climatic conditions)
● Dried slowly over 2 - 3 weeks on raised African beds until the moisture content is reduced to 10-12%.
The coffee is then processed at Othaya dry mill where it is rested in parchment for 3 weeks before being hulled, cleaned and graded by bean size. Finally, the coffee is carefully handpicked before being bagged in GrainPro for export from Mombasa.
Boma wetmill is located in Kericho County in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, south-west Kenya. While the county produces an abundance of speciality coffee, it is famously home to multiple large tea estates and is world-renowned for its tea production. Kericho county boasts good altitude and highly fertile soils which typically produce medium-high acidity in the cup with notes of citrus and rich chocolate.
