Location: MUMWE, NYERI, KENYA

The Mahiga Factory has 400 members actively harvesting and delivering to the processing center. The factory’s total cherry intake tends to hover around 130,000 kgs, meaning the average member of Mahiga is farming enough coffee fruit for roughly two 30kg unit of exportable green.

Counties like Nyeri achieve very high average prices year after year, thanks to the wet, high elevation conditions, and mineral-rich soil.

Ample water supply in the central growing regions of Kenya has historically allowed factories to wash, and soak, and wash their coffees again entirely with fresh, cold river water. It's no wonder that these coffees taste so clean and well-processed!

Conservation is creeping into the discussion in certain places – understandably in the drier areas where water, due to climate change, cannot be as taken for granted. For the most part, however, Kenya continues to thoroughly wash and soak its coffees according to tradition.
