Our third release of four coffees from Rosebella Langat and her farm Chepsangor Estate in the Nandi Hills region. This is the Anaerobic Natural and we've already released both the standard natural and the washed coffees. All four coffees are available as a special Kenyan tasting pack for a limited period, with four 125g bags of each to compare the effects of process on the same harvested coffee.
Chepsangor Estate is located at the Nandi Hills in a highland area of lush green rolling hills at the edge of the Great Rift Valley in the southwestern part of Kenya. It lies at an elevation of between 1750-2000 meters above sea level. Coupled with rich volcanic soils, Arabica coffee thrives in Chepsangor with coffee varieties SL 28, Ruiru 11, and Batian.
Chepsangor Coffee is focused on environmental sustainability and ensures that soil health is a priority in their agronomy practices. Soil testing is done at the farms every year which informs the decisions on crop nutrition. Terracing, manuring, zero-till, inter-cropping with indigenous trees, pruning, and beekeeping for purposes of pollination are mandatory practices at Chepsangor farms.
This particular lot underwent an anaerobic fermentation in the skin for 72 hrs before being taken to the raised beds for drying until the moisture content was reduced to 11%.
