Our Iyego AA microlot was produced by the Iyego Coffee Growers Co-operative in Kenya's, Muranga County. Iyego AA is an 18+ screen and contains mostly SL28 and SL34 with small amounts of Ruiru 11 and Batian. This microlot was chosen for its citrusy brightness, dark chocolate flavor and heavy mouthfeel.
The Iyego Coop is comprised of 670 members from the Mununga, Gatubu, Marimira, Kabiruini, Watuha, Gathima, Gitura, Kiairathe, Thangathi, Nyakahura, Kirangano and Iyego Factory. The average farm size is 30 hectares.
Timely and selective hand picking is carried out in Iyego. 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 cherries 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 on raised tables is done before delivery of the coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing.
