THE STORY BEHIND

We are thrilled to bring you the second project signed Rubens Gardelli and Francis Kipsang! After working on the Mzungu Project for the last six years, Rubens has decided to spice it up a bit with a new fermentation of the same crop. Being the result of an experiment, it is a micro-lot - a very limited edition of an outstanding coffee!

THE VARIETY

SL28
SL28 was bred by Scott Laboratories in 1931 from Tanganyika D.R. It has become very popular throughout Kenya and is recognised as a variety of exceptional cup quality. It has wide leaves with coppery tips, and the beans are wide. At the same time, the productivity of SL28 is comparatively low. Though there is no sufficient proof, some sources claim that Scott Labs crossed mutations of French Mission, Mocha and Yemen Typica to produce SL 28. Whatever the exact genetic composition, their original goal almost certainly was to create a plant with high quality, reasonable productivity and great drought resistance.

THE FERMENTATION PROCESS

For this lot, only the perfectly ripe coffee cherries were hand-picked one by one. First, the transportation to the processing center, the cherries were sorted once again and skins defected ones were removed. After this, some magic was done - no chemicals added, just using the power of nature. We call it special Gardelli fermentation. 


Behind this lot, there have been three years of hard work - adjusting the fermentation, communicating, incorporating feedback. The vision that the creators have, is now fully realised.
