The farm & mill where the coffee cherry is grown & processed.
The Kirinyaga region of Kenya is a small region where growing and producing coffee is the way of life. There are more than 54,000 people involved in coffee here, most of which are coffee growers who manage small farms. Because the farms are too small to produce commercially viable lots, farmers group together into cooperatives. The area has 16 co-ops. This specific lot comes from the Rung’eto Cooperative, which brings together different growers’ harvests at the Kil and Karimikui Factories. These factories are located around 1,750 meters above sea level and produce washed coffees.
