Fine details of coffee processing, such as triple washing done by the Ichimama wet mill, segregate them from other washing stations. Unlike the traditional washed process, this method only involves a pre-fermentation float to sort out floaters and a post-fermentation soak that cleans the coffee. This small step significantly amplifies the flavour clarity of washed coffee, improving coffee quality consistency.
This is straight, mind-blowing Kenya coffee. While lots of Kenya coffee is developing a new flavour profile due to the global climate, we are lucky to find classical Kenya washed flavour, which has bright acidity, juicy body, and fragrance. This immediately distinguishes Kenyan coffee, making it so appealing to coffee drinkers with fruity stone fruit flavours like peach and calamansi. The medium roast gives Ichimama a medium body with a slight flavour like oolong tea. Amaizng triple-washed Kenyan coffee with harmony and exciting flavour.
This has been one of the most sought-after washes in Kenya since we started Arkib. Ichimama is one of the famous coffee factories or wet mills owned by Othaya Cooperative. Around 700 active members in the region contribute their ripe cherries to Ichimama. It is one of the biggest processing plants and is managed by Bernard Karuga, the factory manager who is responsible for monitoring the wet mill's daily operation.
