Coffee Background

This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Kiiriangoro Factory (wet mill) in Murang'a County, Kenya. The Thangaini Farmers Cooperative Society manages the Kiiriangoro Factory, which processes cherry from members who generally cultivate around 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots. With the harvest coming from more than 5000 small parcels, cherry classification is the most critical variable for ensuring cup quality. Small plots give these producers more control to strategically pick and deliver only the ripest cherry to the factory. Additional cherry sorting is also done at the factory before the coffee is depulped, fermented and washed. After the coffee is washed, it’s soaked in fresh water for long periods of time to solidify the hallmark Kenyan profiles.
