About Kenya Nyeri Ichuga AA Washed

Located in Nyeri County, Ichuga Coffee Factory belongs to the Kiama Farmer Cooperative Society. The factory is one out of a total of five factories in the society, and is located near Karatina town in the direction of Mount Kenya. Smallholder farmers deliver their cherry to the factory, where the cherry undergoes sorting, pulping, fermentation, washing, and soaking before the clean parchment is dried on raised beds. The parchment is then delivered to Kahawa Bora Millers where the coffee is milled and later prepared for export in the Nairobi warehouse. Through our field team, the farmers are able to access farmer training, and on the factory level we support with financing for maintenance and operating costs.
