Description

The AMCOS started in the 1970’s under the name Ujamaa with 56 members. In the year 1994, they were renamed as Itumpi AMCOS. Today, they are still operating under this name and have 160 active members. During harvest, producers deliver the cherries from 12.30-6 p.m. Usually, the pulper is being turned on at around 2 p.m. and can run up to 10 p.m. After being pulped, the parchment is graded into P1, P2, P3, P lights and pods in the washing channels, before it soaks in the tanks for 8-10 hours. The drying of the parchment will take 7-10 days in this area.

 

The cup has cocoa, almond, and cooked cranberry flavors with tart citric acidity and mellow fruit-like sweetness.
