Karianini Coffee Factory is operated by the Mwirua Farmers Cooperative Society (F.C.S.) and was founded in the 1960s. Smallholder farmers here own about 1/5th of a hectare and deliver cherry to the factory for processing. The coffee is delivered and sorted before being depulped, and then it is fermented underwater for 15–24 hours. It's washed three times and spread on metal drying tables for 6–7 days.

 

*Our preferred brewing method for this coffee is Chemex with a 1:12.5 coffee to water ratio
