Ichamama - for the first time as a natural

The washed coffee from the Ichamama cooperative has impressed us since 2013 and for the first time they made a natural one for us and a friendly roaster. A berry-velvety filter coffee with notes of blackberries, shortbread and vanilla . Different, yet familiar, the coffee combines two worlds - the liveliness of a washed coffee and the velvety-sweetness of a natural.

Tell me more about Ichamama

The coffee maker love story! In 2013 we visited the Ichamama cooperative for the first time. We remember the encounter with the people well, but also with the animals - we were able to eat, among other things, a freshly slaughtered goat. In 2014 our Benjamin became Swiss champion in the Brewers Cup with the Ichamama. Felix took part in the Swiss championship in October 2022 with the fresh harvest and received top marks for the coffee. We have been in contact with the producers since 2013 and buy their coffee year after year. We have now co-financed drying beds so that the bottleneck of drying can be alleviated.

Why does coffee taste the way it does?

We were so excited when Samuel from KCCE told us that Ichamama Cooperative made five sacks of natural for us. The coffee tastes about as you would expect: year after year, the coffees from Ichamama bring a bright, juicy berry note, with a medium body and a tea-like texture. The dry one Post-harvest process gives the coffee a little more weight and adds a velvety sweetness that makes the coffee flattering.

Why did we buy this coffee?

Because it's so interesting to see how the same cherries result in a different flavor profile depending on the post-harvest process. And because coffee is a novelty for Kenya: there are no “naturals” in the Kenyan coffee tradition. The coffees that are dried in the cherry are called mbunis and are considered low-quality coffees that are not intended for export. A change of attitude occurs very selectively, the more dry-processed coffees are exported.

How do we roast this coffee?

We roast the coffee as a 12.5kg batch in the 30kg Giesen roaster for 8 minutes and a development time of 40 seconds. We start the roasting with 60% energy and gradually reduce the gas after four minutes. We roast the coffee one minute faster than the washed coffee to maximize the intensity of the coffee.

Vielschichtiger Kaffee

Nach der ersten Tasse war ich nicht so überzeugt, aber beim Orlin ging es mir genau so, als er dann ausgetrunken war, hat er mir gefehlt. Auf Entdeckungsreise bei den Kaffeemachern zu gehen, lohnt sich auf jeden Fall.

Hi Martin,
das ist sehr schön beschrieben: auf Entdeckunsgreise gehen. Wir sind in der Tat auch Entdecker und finden immer wieder neue tolle Kaffees und wollen wie mit euch teilen.
danke für deine super Bewertung.

Suchtgefahr!

Super Filterkaffee. Ein sehr sauberes Ergebnis in der Tasse mit den beschriebenen Aromanoten. Besonders schön abgerundet durch die Butterkeksnote. Hoffe man kann diesen Filterkaffee bald wieder bestellen!

Clean!

Für einen Natural aus Kenia erstaunlich clean und komplex.

Bin begeistert vom Ichamama Natural

gleicher Name - andere Aufbereitung - Für meinen Geschmack ein komplett anderer Kaffee wie der fermentierte Ichamama. Optisch nicht die schönsten Bohnen, aber ultra lecker Kaffee in der Tasse.
Habe beide Ichamama letzte Woche probiert.
Bei diesem war die Tüte nach 3 Tagen schon leer.
Mit Universal V60 Rezept hatte er einen herrlichen Duft in der Tasse und die beschriebenen Geschmacksnoten. Vor allen Dingen die Kekse kamen beim trinken gut durch. Genau mein Ding. Der war richtig lecker und leicht zu handeln. Bei dem werde ich definitiv Wiederholungstäter.

Hallo Uwe,
vielen Dank für ein so ausführliches und tolles Feedback inklusive Foto.
Wir freuen uns, wenn du widerholst ;-)
