Description: Gicherori factory lies 1550m above sea level on the expansive slopes of Mt. Kenya region which has deep rich red volcanic soils ideal for coffee production. Temperatures range from 12-25°C. The factory was started in 1997. The main crop season is from October to December. This lot was picked between December 2015 to January 2016.
The factory has been receiving assistance from Coffee Management Services (CMS). Their long term goal is to increase coffee production through farmer training, input access, Good Agricultural Practice seminars, and a sustainable farming handbook that is updated and distributed annually. The wish is to establish a transparent, trust-based relationship with the farmers, helping to support a sustainable industry growth in Kenya, whilst bringing premium quality to the end consumer, and premium prices to the farmers
