For almost 40 years, the Kirimiri Factory has been producing SL28, SL34, and Ruiru 11 coffees from their contributing small-holder farmers. 722 of their 946 local members have contributed to this lot, with each farmer having an average of only 2 hectares of land with around 250 coffee trees. The farmers’ ripe coffee cherries are brought to the factory for depulping, washing, and soaking in the factory’s fresh water stream with four soaking pits for recycling and purifying the water.
