Meet the farmer

This fully washed coffee is from Kamwangi washing station, one of 3 washing stations (or factories as they are called in Kenya) managed by the Ngariama Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) in Kirinyaga county, situated in Kenya's central highlands. It sits on the slopes of Mt. Kenya in the agriculturally rich Central Province. The Co-op works with around 1,500 local farmers who cultivate the varieties of Ruiru 11, SL28 and Batian at altitudes up to 1,800masl. They give back a big premium to producers as well as provide financial support for school fees and farming aids.

Coffee story

All the coffee cherry is hand-picked and delivered on the same day to the washing station. The coffee cherries are hand sorted for unripes and overripes by the farmers before they go into production. The pulp is removed and the coffee is fermented for 24-36 hours under close shade depending on climate temperatures. After fermentation the coffees are washed and again graded by density in washing channels. The heavier coffee, which sinks, is considered the higher quality, sweeter coffee, and any lighter density or lower grade coffee beans are removed. They are then taken to the drying tables where they will be sun-dried on African drying beds for 12 to 20 days (the time depending on weather conditions).
