This coffee is from the Ichamama Factory, a washing station near Karima Hill in Nyeri. The station was named after the Ichamama river which flows near enough to the station to be the source of water for processing coffee. Ichamama is one of 19 washing stations that make up the Othaya Farmer's Coopertive Society, a coop-run organization, one of the older ones I might add. Othaya started in the mid-1950s, ballooning from 250 original members to 15,000 strong today. Karima is one of the older of the group, erected in 1964, and currently with nearly 1,000 farmer members (and is one of the most productive of the 19). The station sits at about 1750 meters above sea level, and coffee is grown in the higher altitude areas surrounding it. AB refers to the bean size, a screen range of 15 - 17 screen.

There's a sweet red fruit smell in the dry fragrance that also sees a clean, brown sugar sweetness folded in. At City and City+ roasts, the stage is set for a complex cup profile, and the wet aroma further confirms this with stronger fruit smells like fruit reductions with dark sugars, and are particularly strong at City+. There's a noticeable citrus note at City that has flavor elements of both lemon and orange, but without the accompanying bite that comes with the real thing. Instead, they're buttressed against flavor aspects of dark brown sugar like panela, and with a slight caramelizing/cooked feature. As the cup cools off, Ichamama's fruited side is grows, and a cranberry sauce flavor comes through, replete with orangey accents, and a cinnamon stick note marking the finish. Ichamama is best in the City to City+ roast range, where top notes are most easily picked up on, and citric acidity shimmers.
