Maguta Estate, run by our friend David Ngibuini, and Project Origin have collaborated on a joint initiative committed to improving the livelihoods of the local community in each region through restoration and improvement of farming practices, as well as implementing a range of carbonic maceration processing techniques, to create a higher and more sustainable income for producers and farmers. With the help of David, the Murware Farmers who deliver their cherries to Maguta Estate assist each other in maintaining their farming standards, resulting in ever-improving coffees.

Processing Details
o Later harvest cherries are delivered to the wet mill where the farmer hand sorts based on colour
o Ripe cherries are processed in airtight environment for an extended period at a cool
temperature to slow down fermentation
o Cherries are then laid on raised beds in thick stacks to dry and regularly cocooned to maintain temperature during the first week of drying
o Cherries were then spread in thin layers for the remaining 20 days of drying
o Moisture content is reduced to 10-12%
o Drying typically takes 25-30 days
o Coffee is then delivered to the dry mill and stored in dried cherry pods for protection until ready for dry milling and export
