This coffee has been floated in cherry, pulped by a Penagos Eco-Pulper, bypassing the demucilager so some mucilage remained, then fermented in a tank for 72 hours before it is washed, and then dried carefully on raised tables, partially under shade and cover from the rain.
This coffee is part of a new project with Kingha Estates outgrowers. Kingsley is committed to working with local farmers to improve their income, and believes different processing protocols have the potential to increase quality. All our coffees with the name Kingha Collective are coffees from small farms in Kinungu District, the same district as Kingha Estate.
“Injura'' is the name for rain in a local Ugandan dialect in Kinungu. It is a mix of SL varieties commonly planted and grown in the region. This coffee is a limited edition 14-bag experimental lot. The cherries were picked over a period of some weeks in November and December 2019, from farms located between 1500 - 2000 masl. Cherries are bought and transported to Kingha for pulping, fermentation and drying. The Kingha coffees are mainly washed, but undergo different fermentation methods.
