Mount Kenya, at the helm of Kenya’s Central Province, is the second tallest peak on the continent of Africa and a commanding natural presence. Kirinyaga county is one of the smallest and yet best known of these central counties, next to its neighbor, Nyeri. Year after year Kirinyaga coffees are beloved for their ripe fruit-forward profiles, many reminiscent of berry jam, citrus, and lemongrass. The Karimikui factory alone has 1400 contributing farmer members, and is one of only three factories that comprise its local Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS), Rungeto. Farmers belonging to Karimikui average slightly more than 500 kilograms of picked cherry each. Rungeto FCS oversees the operations of all three member cooperatives, Karimikui, Kii, and Kiangoi. This year, Karimikui was a standout lot with notes of huckleberry, honey, cranberry, lime, and pineapple.
