A note from Apex the importer:

The Karimikui factory is located at a high
altitude in an area where tea is more
commonly grown than coffee. It is a
member of the Rungeto FCS, a cooperative
that is known for producing some of the
highest-performing coffees in Kenya.
Hundreds of smallholders deliver ripe
cherries to this station every year where
the factory team manually sorts them
before production. Selected cherries are
de-pulped and graded before the coffees
undergo a period of dry fermentation in
tanks. After fermentation, the coffees are
washed in clean channels. A period of
soaking (second wash) occurs shortly after
to ensure the development of flavours can
reach their full potential. In the final
stage, the coffees are placed on raised
beds to dry where they get covered with
plastic throughout the hottest part of the
day and overnight. Workers periodically
rotate the coffees at this stage to ensure
the coffees dry evenly. The final cup is
incredibly sweet, intense, and reminiscent
of black currant and sweet citrus. It is the
nutrient-dense soil in this area paired with
the immaculate processing method used
at this factory that makes this coffee
consistently high-performing year after
