Othaya Chinga

This week we are back in Kenya!

Chinga is one of the smallest washing stations of the Othaya Farmer's Co-operative. With most producers living higher up and bringing the coffee cherries down, however, a small amount of coffee is grown at the washing station too. There are also tea plantations stretching across the land leading up to the washing station.

The collected cherries go together into batches called 'Outturn' and put through the natural process.

The cooperative is based at the Gatuyaini wet mill, just north of Othaya town. They have a cupping room with excellent QC procedures, and their latest addition is a small roastery, where they hope to develop a market for their coffee inside Kenya.
