Well balanced, juicy body with a sparkling citric acidity. This smaller bean is a bit cleaner and sweeter than it’s larger sorted neighbors. Still complex and silky, this delightful cup is full of cranberry and citrus, with a pleasing, slightly tart aftertaste.
The Kimel plantation was established in 1974 by an Australian, Bobby Gibbs; it is now owned by traditional landowners, the Opais being the main tribe.There are 432 producers and they live on the estate. The estate also provides schooling for children and medical facilities for the workforce and their dependents. Clean running water has been made available to the estate workers by way of a community project and its implementation is overseen by the estate’s management. Since the estate is located along the Kimel river, from which it derived its name, it has access to good clean water for the processing of its crop. The estate’s management also implements some ecology friendly policies with regard to environmental issues, such as the recycling of pulp and water used during the wet processing.
