The Kenya AB Gakurari Estate comes from the Gatunyo-Kigio Farmers Cooperative Society located in the Muran’ga County, which is south of Nyeri. This cooperative has four factories, one of which is the “Gakurari Factory” which supplies this AB offering. The Gakurari Factory consists of 250 men and 130 women. Collectively they are responsible for 363 acres of coffee producing land. The coffee undergoes a washed process where fully ripe cherries are pulped, fermented and washed. The Gakurari Factory uses water from River Chania and River Kiama to process the cherries. The coffee is dried slowly over the course of 2-3 weeks until it reaches the optimal moisture content of 10-12% acceptable for exporting. After dry milling, this coffee is stored in Nairobi and shipped out of Mombasa.
