THE ART OF PRODUCTION:
Timely and selective hand picking is carried out in the 3 wet mills. Cherry is delivered to wet mill
the same day it is picked. Cherry sorting is carried out at the wet mill prior to the pulping. Red
ripe cheries are separated from underipes, overipes and foreign matter. Processing utilizes clean
river water (wet processing) that is recirculated before disposal into seepage pits. Sun drying is
carried out on raised African beds where the parchment coffee is covered in the midday sun and
turned carefully to ensure even drying. The dried parchment is delivered to the dry mill for hulling,
grading and sorting before being bagged in GrainPro for export from Mombasa port.
The wetmills station are located on the Eastern side of Mt. Kenya national park about 4km from
the town of Karatina. The conditions for coffee growing are near perfect: there is abundant
rainfall throughout the year, with concentrated wet periods between March-June and October-
December. The average daily temperatures range from 150C to 260C with considerable cooling
taking place at night. The water used at the station for fermenting and washing the coffee is
drawn from the nearby rivers and is re-circulated during processing for conservation purposes.
After use it is moved into soak pits away from water sources so that it does not pollute the area.
