Ichamara is part of the Gikaru Coop Society in Nyeri. It’s a small factory (one of five in the Coop) that purchases/processes coffee from small family farms. This particular factory in a small micro-region of Nyeri county farther to the south than most of the coffees from this county. grown between the eastern Aberdare mountain range and western slopes of Mt. Kenya.
This is a fantastic coffee it is very well rounded in all aspects. Nice medium body with bright acidity but not overwhelming compared to other Kenyans and its fruitiness shines in the cup. This is our favorite Kenya of the year.
