This AB top lot is produced by Ngemwa Estate and processed at the prestigious Central Kenya Coffee Mill (CKCM). CKCM is well known for its high-quality coffee production – all coffee cherries are handpicked and delivered to the mill the same day, where they undergo meticulous sorting. Mill employees oversee the process, and any underripe or damaged cherries are sent back by the cherry clerk who is one of the most crucial harvest-period staff. The clerk keeps meticulous records of how much coffee each producer delivers on any given day (and thus how much payment is due once the coffee has sold). This strict quality control incentivises farmers only to pick and deliver the ripest cherry that they can, ensuring the high standard that has become synonymous with the 'Central Kenyan Coffee Mill'.
