From Our Importer
Konyu Coffee Factory was established in 1962, and is operated by the Kabare Farmers Cooperative Society (F.C.S.), which has 1,090 contributing smallholder member farmers. The area has fertile red volcanic clay soil thanks to nearby Mt. Kenya. Coffee is picked by individual farmers and delivered in cherry to the factory, where it is sorted and processed. After depulping, it is fermented for 14–24 hours underwater, then washed four times before being put on raised metal drying tables for 6–15 days.
