Kenya Karimikui

Good for Filter

Package size, g: 250



The Karimikui factory is located at a high altitude in an area where they grow more tea than coffee. It’s under the greater Rungeto Farmers Cooperative society, which has other great performing factories like Kiangoi and Kii. Karimikui and other Rungeto washing stations are always on top of our priority list.

Each lot consists of coffees from hundreds of smallholders from the area surrounding the washing station (factory). The team at the factory sorts the cherries before they go into production. The coffees are traditionally processed with dry fermentation, before being washed and graded in channels, and dried on raised beds. The farmers mainly grow SL28 and SL34, but as with almost all Kenyan cooperative coffees, there can be a mix of everything. Other common cultivars are K7, Ruiru 11, and now also Batian.
