Muthingiini Coffee Factory was established in 1968 in the Kirinyaga area near the capital Nairobi. It is run by the Rwama Farmers Co-operative Society, which has more than 1,000 members. The feature of this factory is that it is very productive. It is run by 7 full-time staff and hires casual workers depending on the season. There is a bi-annual production cycle, with early harvesting from April to June followed by the second season from October to December.
Since a large amount of water is used for refining coffee, drainage is always a problem, but this factory has adopted a system that does not allow wastewater to flow as a consideration for the natural environment. It is a method (wastewater soak pits) in which a special hollow is made in the soil, and it is naturally filtered and returned to the groundwater.
Best Consumed: 10-25 days post-roast date
This coffee is great for filter brew methods. Our favorites are Kalita Wave, Aeropress or Clever Dripper. For filter, we recommend 6g of ground coffee for every 100ml of water at approx 95c. Use your kitchen scales you’ll love it!
