This week, Patrik jumped back into the roastery to present our latest monthly Subscription release. Our subscription members receive between 1 to 5 bags of coffee every month, and we're committed to providing them with not only the highest quality roasted coffee but also offering access to our roasting specifications and an approach towards brewing. This month, we sent our members the first of our Kenyan releases from the fresh harvest.
This is the first year that we're able to work with this phenomenal AA selection from the Gathiruini Factory, on the slopes of the Aberdare mountain range. This particular lot, a selection of SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11 varietals, is our first Kenyan release from the recent harvest and is an excellent example of high-quality coffee from the Kiambu county. The cherries, collected from over 730 members of the Komothai Farmers Cooperative, are delivered to the Gathuruini Factory to be sorted by maturity and quality grouping before pulping and washing.
The coffee receives between 24 and 48 hours of fermentation, dependant on density, before drying on raised beds for an average duration of 8-14 days. We're really excited to be working with this coffee. You can expect to find notes of tropical fruits, delicate florals as well as a distinct finish of blackberry. We select different coffee every month to feature for our subscribers, watch this week's video to learn more about the kind of information we're providing every month.
