ORIGIN BACKGROUND:

Grown by smallholders organized around the Thunguri factory (wet mill) in Nyeri County, Kenya, this coffee is produced through the Rumukia Farmers' Cooperative, a member of the Kenya Cooperative Coffee Exports (KCCE). The KCCE is a vast farmer-owned network that ensures greater traceability and better profit margins for farmers than the traditional auction coffees.

Farmers cultivate roughly 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots. The Rumukia Farmers' Cooperative works in support of these farmers to receive and process cherry. Additionally, the staff relies on a sample roaster and cupping lab to provide quality feedback to growers. If any variation in the visual aspect, odor or moisture of the coffee is noted, the staff is able to offer corrective advice immediately to co-op members.

The town of Thunguri lies just over the border inside Kirinyaga County, a mile or so from the Nyeri border. Four of Kenya's counties--Embu, Kirinyaga, Nyeri and Meru--converge at the peak of Mt. Kenya, Africa's second highest peak after Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Each of the four counties is recognized for growing some of the country's most celebrated coffee.
