From the Kenyan Highlands, to your local Jamaica Blue

Kiunyu Factory is located in Ngariama Location , Kirinyaga County.

Kirinyaga County sits at the foothills of Mount Kenya, some 112km from Nairobi and borders Embu County to the east, Machakos County to the south, Murang’a County to south west and Nyeri County to the west.

The county is named after Mount Kenya, which is known to the locals as Kirinyaga, meaning the crest of whiteness, synonymous with its snow-capped peaks.

The factory is part of the Karithathi Farmers Cooperative Society which was established in the 1960’s, now with 1,600 active farmer members.

The processing method

The farmers coffee cherries are closely monitored and when ripe and red, handpicked early in the morning and delivered to the factory.

The cherries are then sorted and depulped, graded and washed in channels before being spread evenly on raised beds for 7-15 days, whilst being turned regularly to dry under careful supervision.

Many of the farmers also grow tea as the deep fertile and well-drained soil is ideal for both coffee and tea production.

With a sophisticated & silky mouthfeel, featuring sugary caramel notes balanced by bright citrus acidity, this coffee has all the flavours we have come to expect from high quality Kenyan coffee.
