All coffee is sold as whole beans. If you would like your coffee ground please leave a note at checkout.
On the northern edge of Murang’a county, near Kiriaini town, sits Ndiara Coffee Factory. Established in 1999 Ndiara rests on a 2 acre piece of land and serves farmers of Kiriaini, Kiogoini, Mathioya, Kagioini and Kagumo-ini villages. One of four Factories currently affiliated to Kiru Farmers Co-operative Society, Ndiara’s membership stands at 400 with only 50 of these members no active farmers.
The Co-op have heavily invested in its infrastructure, ensuring each factory has well maintained Drying beds and routinely serviced pre-graders/depulpers. In line with the rising awareness on the need to conserve the environment the factory has initiated a couple of projects among these are the waste water soak pits, of which the factory has one. Here the water is allowed to soak in back to the soil.
Once farmers bring their cherries to the factory, they are sorted and processed as soon as they arrive: The coffee is depulped, then fermented underwater for 12–24 hours before being washed four times and spread on raised beds for 9–13 days.
