The Karumandi washing station was established in 1961, in Kirenyaga County, located in the Central highlands of Kenya. These foothills of Mount Kenya have some of the very best soils for planting coffee in the world. The smallholder farmers grow potatoes, bananas, mangoes, and avocados alongside their coffee. The high altitude, volcanic rich soil, and warm temperatures are contributing factors to the fine flavour of the coffee. Coffee varieties used by the farmers are mainly SL28 and SL34. Farmers as part of the Baragwi Cooperative are protected from unfair pricing. The Co-op acts as an auditor and advocate between the farmers and the washing stations. Maintaining fair trading practices for the farmers and in return high standards for the washing station, keeping both parties accountable and cared for.
We're sure you'll enjoy this flavourful fully-washed coffee from Kenya.
