Muthuthuini Factory is operated by the Ruthaka Farmers Cooperative Society, which has 3,557 members delivering cherry to seven factories or washing stations. The farmers in this area of Nyeri grow coffee in fertile red volcanic soil.
Coffee in Kenya is typically traceable down to the factory, or mill level: Most farmers own between 1/8 to 1/4 of a hectare, and often grow crops other than coffee as well, which means they rely on a central processing unit for sale and processing of their coffee. Producers deliver in cherry form to a factory, where the cooperative will sort, weigh, and issue payment for the delivery.
This complex cup is sugary, sweet and savory boasting rich rhubarb, chocolate and grapefruit notes.
