Perched high up in the southern foothills of Mount Kenya on rich red volcanic soil, the growing areas surrounding the Karimikui factory are ideal for producing some of the finest
Kenyan coffee. Farmers have been delivering cherry to the Karimikui factory since it first opened in 1966. In 1997, the factory left a large umbrella farmers’ cooperative society
(FCS) and joined the Rungeto FCS, which manages just two other factories. At the Karimikui factory, only the ripest cherries are delivered, and additional hand sorting and floating are done to remove less dense and damaged beans 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. The coffee is dried over
a period of two weeks on raised beds, which are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for optimal drying.
