Kenya Kiangundo

Kenya Kiangundo

Grown in the bright red, nutrient-rich soil of extinct volcano, Mt Kenya, Kenya Kiangundo is a gorgeous washed coffee from Nyeri County, Karatina. Kiangundo, the washing station, receives cherries from over 690 growers in the region.

KIANGUNDO WASHING STATION

Established in 1974, Kiangundo is a washing station located in Nyeri County, Karatina. Owned by the Kiama Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Society which serves over 2,100 producers of Kenya’s central highlands, Kiangundo is managed by the wonderful David Kamau.

Nyeri County is part of Kenya’s former Central Province, dissolved in 2013. The area includes Murang’a, Nyeri, Kirinyaga, Kiambu and Nyandarua Counties, and is traditionally the homeland of people of Kikuyu ethnicity. Due to its fertile land, geographical proximity to the capital, Nairobi and close integration with the country’s colonial administration prior to independence, the highlands are considered one of the more wealthy and productive areas of the country. This integration has afforded the communities of Central Kenya with opportunities for education, business and political prowess despite the various injustices of the colonial government.

Moreover, the Kikuyu people have a long and proud history of agriculture. The region is farmed intensively, with coffee, tea and dairy being the most important modern crops grown. The soil qualities, high elevations and cool climate of this area all contribute to the outstanding quality of coffees produced here.

PRICING EXPLAINED

 *This is the FOB (Free On Board) price: the price paid to the exporter before shipping, and which does not include shipping costs, weight loss (around 17%), storage and other charges. Ultimately, the FOB price represents the $ figure that stays in the coffee's country of origin, benefiting its producer, community, and beyond. 

^This is the 'raw' price paid directly to the producer, and paid in the local currency for parchment coffee. The coffee is then milled and sorted before being placed in bags, ready for shipping.
