Kangunu Farmers’ co-operative society limited was registered by the commissioner for cooperative development just over 21 years ago. The society has one factory currently with 1,700 active members.

The factory is receiving assistance from one of partners at origin, Dormans’ Coffee Management Services (CMS). Their long term goal is to increase coffee production through farmer training, input access, Good Agricultural Practice seminars, and a sustainable farming handbook updated and distributed annually.

CMS aims to establish a transparent, trust based relationship with the smallholder farmers, helping to support long-term industry growth in Kenya, and premium prices to farmers, and premium quality for coffee drinkers.

Farmers have access to pre-financing, easing cashflow to cover school fees and farm inputs. The factory manager is re-trained every year, and field days are held to connect government and experts with farmers.

The location

Coffee from Kenya

Alongside Ethiopia and Colombia, Kenya is one of the origins we get most excited about at the roastery. It exports some of the most vibrant, bright, and unique coffees in the world.


The Kirinyaga region of Kenya

This region is located east of Nyeri, and has similarly rich volcanic soils and a high percentage of smallholder producers.

Farm processes

Washed process

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
