Step 5

Taste it

Most of the time it will be right first try. Sometimes it will need adjustment.All you need to decide is:
  1. Is it too sour, like lemon. In this case you need to extract more.
  2. Is OK, you dont need to change anything. Some refer to this as the sweet spot, but coffee doesnt actually contain sugar so think of this as the calm between too sour and too bitter.
  3. Is it too bitter. All coffee is bitter to some extent but you can reduce the bitterness by extracting less.

    The KIRIRIMA pulping station is one of the 22 washing stations under the management of SOGESTAL KAYANZA. It is located in a high altitude with 1880 m.

    They have extensive experience in processing specialty coffee because they started this last activity since 1986.

    They transform the cherry coffee produced in more than 11 hills distributed in 2 municipalities of which one in KAYANZA province and the other in NGOZI province (KABARORE and BUSIGA) which are in areas of good productivity of quality coffee. The soil is generally volcanic but variable from one Hill to another (Hygroxeroferrisol, Hygroferrisol and Kaolisol). Specialty coffee is prepared separately from others by considering hills where they are produced. The average production is 350 000 Kg and the specialty coffee represents 75% of all that produce.

    The number of coffee-growers who bring cherry coffee varies between 1500 and 2 000 depending on the average or good production campaign.
