    There are around 700,000 producers across Kenya, and they tend to work completely by hand, from picking to drying and processing to sorting. The rich red volcanic soils of the central region are known to produce some of the best coffees coming out of Kenya. Kianjege Coffee Factory is located in Central Province, Kirinyaga District in Kariti location of Ndia Division near Karatina town. It was established in 1987 and rests on a 7 acre piece of land serving Nyagathi, Nyangio and Kimathi Villages.

    Coffee in Kenya is most often thought of as the SL’s – 28 and 34 most commonly, but in the 1980’s Ruiru was released as a crossing to counteract their weakness – Coffee Borer Disease, or CBD. It has a complex make up, owning parts to Catimor as the mother plant, and a multicross selection involving amongst others K7 (a nod to the varietal input from India after the rust outbreak in Ceylon), SL28, N39 (a Tanzanian Bourbon selection from the 1920’s), and Sudan Rume.

    Expect notes of blackberry, red currant, Dr Pepper
