Ruarai PB – Kenya

sour cherries, black currants, spices

  • Espresso

Ruarai is the name of the river that passes through the area, and this is where they get their clean water for their processing. The factory is under the Ruthaka Farmers Cooperative Society. They are supported by Tropical farm management, a company that supports smallholders to increase their coffee production as well as helps the factories with quality control and traceability related to processing.

The Ruthaka Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) is located in Nyeri in Central Kenya. Nyeri is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya, and together with the neighboring region Kirinyaga, is known for its intense, complex, and flavor-dense coffees. The FCS is made up of mainly smallholder farms, each with some 100 trees. They are organized in Cooperative Societies that act as umbrella organizations for the factories where the small­holders deliver their coffee cherries for processing.

The coffees are traditionally processed with dry fermentation before being washed and graded in channels and dried on raised beds. The farmers are mainly growing SL28 and SL34, but might also have other varieties mixed in.
