REGION: RIFT VALLEY

BEHIND PRODUCTION

Siret wetmill is part of the Kimlogit Farmers’ Cooperative Society Ltd, based in Kericho county in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley region. The mill processes cherries sourced from 1,481 farmers.The coffee is wet processed, where the fully ripe cherries are pulped, fermented for 12 - 48 hours (depending on climatic conditions), washed and then 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.

LOCATION

Siret 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.

Siret AA arrived to our hands from the company Olam Specialty coffees. Olam coffees is a sourcing company focusing solely on high quality green coffees. They  do the groundwork to identify, improve, select, and import the best coffees from the most interesting origins. Every coffee they  buy or forward to a client is selected based on the cup profile. They  believe  that transparency through the chain and premiums going back to the producers is the only way to achieve the best collaboration. Collaboration with olam started 2 years ago and many of our coffees are based to their quality of transparency.
