This coffee is from Kaguyu Factory, located near Kerugoya town in the Ndia division of Kirinyaga county in Kenya. The factory services around 850 members, growing an average of 200 trees on each farm. This region has red volcanic soil, and along with coffee, the producers grow tea, bananas, and corn under shade provided by macadamia, eucalyptus, and gravellea trees.
Coffee crops are picked ripe and brought to the factory for depulping, washing, and soaking; farmers receive annual training from the factory manager, and there are days hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and agrochemical companies to teach farmers. The factory’s water comes from the Rutui river, and there are soaking pits for recycling the water.
