The cooperative is located in Ngariama, Gichugu Division, Kirinyaga East District on the southern slopes of Mount Kenya. About 2000 active farmers with an average farm size of 0.5 to 1 hectare supply their cherries to Rung’eto FCS. In addition to coffee, the cooperative also operates a dairy plant.The community benefits from integrated farming and a continuous cash flow. There is also a support programme to im- prove farming practices.

Please note, our espresso grind is suitable for most home coffee machines. If you have a commercial grade coffee machine, E.g. Linea Mini, then please add an order note in your basket, requesting commercial espresso grind.

We would always recommend that you use a grinder at home in order to achieve the grind suitable for your particular brewing equipment, but we appreciate that this is not always possible, so we do offer our coffee as ground. We offer grind options that we think would achieve the best results from the numerous variations of machines and equipment that are available to consumers, but we cannot guarantee that our ground options will work with every unique set up.
