About Kagumoini

Kagumoini is a wet mill (factory) established by the Kamacharia farmers cooperative society in Murang’a, central – Kenya. 

There is about 1000 farmers in the nearby area who sell their coffee cherries to the factory, and every week during the harvest the cherries are bulked together and processed and dried at the wet mill. 

Typically most of the farmers are still growing the SL28 and SL34 cultivars , but in later years they are also planting the new hybrid cultivars   Ruiru 11 and Batian. The farms are situated between 1650 –  1750 meters above sea level with temperate days and cool nights yielding intense and fruity coffees.

Although Kenyan coffee production is generally on a decline, the long term goal for the cooperative society is to increase their members coffee production.  Therefore they offer farmer training to their members and pre-financing of farm inputs.
