Kenya Kiganjo was produced by numerous smallholder farmers, all of whom are members of the Thiririka Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) delivering to Kigajo Coffee Factory (as washing stations/wet mills are called in Kenya). The factory is located near the town of Gatundu, in Kenya’s Kiambu County. Kiganjo is well known for producing exceptionally high quality coffee. Processing at the wet mill adheres to stringent quality-driven methods. All coffee cherries are handpicked and are delivered to the mill the same day, where they undergo meticulous sorting. After removing the coffee’s pulp, the cherries are delivered to one of the factory’s fermentation tanks, where it will ferment for between 12 to 48 hours depending on the ambient temperature at the time. After this, the coffee is fully washed in clean water pumped from the River Theta. The coffee is then delivered to dry on the factory’s raised drying beds.
