Getting product details...
Karinga Coffee Factory (wetmill) is located in Kirinyaga in the Central Province. It is affiliated to Gitwe Farmers Co-operative Society, consisting of around 600 farmers. The factory is surrounded by tea-growing zones. Most farmers are tea growing people, thus most of them tend to grow tea more than coffee. But the management now is encouraging farmers to go back to growing coffee because the price of cherry is going up.
Local research stations are developing coffees to suit the area so that affiliate members of the factory can source these coffees and carry out all agronomic activities associated with coffee production and plant it according to the stipulated guidelines. Fieldwork carried out involves weeding, pruning, spraying, and application of fertilizer, mulching and technical advice. Technical advice is offered through farmer training programs and field visits/days offered by ministry of agriculture. Compliance to the agreed guidelines is checked and supervised by the field committee which goes round the farms. They usually check that coffee is not inter-grown with other crops such as maize and Beans, though they do allow intercropping with Macadamia.
This coffee is sourced based on its unique flavor profile and standout cup quality. It is carefully selected out of a broad range of coffees cupped just after the harvest. The coffee is purchased directly from the producer, and has justified a premium price due to its attributes and clean cup, which are a result of good processing practices. The Cooperative wet mill qualifies to our ethical and environmental standards and they have the required systems for quality control on processing, grading and lot separation.
