Kenya Karimikiu AA
Karamikiu Coffee Factory is situated in Kirinyaga county, a renowned coffee-producing region in Kenya. As one of the washing stations managed by the Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society, Karamikiu has become a central hub for over 1400 small-holder farmers who supply the facility with ripe coffee cherries. Located on the southern slope of Mt. Kenya, the farms supporting Karamikiu benefit from the optimal conditions for coffee cultivation in Kirinyaga County. These farms have nutrient-rich red soils and enjoy a consistent supply of fresh water from streams and tributaries flowing down the mountain year-round. The farmers in this region specialize in growing high-quality arabica varieties, specifically SL 28 and SL 34. Among the numerous samples we evaluated this season, this auction-purchased lot stood out as one of our top favorites.
