Rianjagi factory is owned and operated by the Rianjagi Farmers Cooperative Society, which was built in 1950.

It’s now made up of just over 1,500 member farmers, and the cooperative is managed by a board of five elected representatives, one for each of the electoral zones in the area. The co-op also has a permanent staff of eight who are overseen by a secretary-manager.

Coffee is delivered by local farmers the day that it’s picked, and is sorted for quality at the mill before being depulped and processed. After de-pulping, the coffee is fermented overnight and washed with fresh river water, then placed on drying tables.

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 Embu region of Kenya

Named after the town of Embu, also near Mount Kenya and its fertile growing conditions

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.
