The Kamwangi Factory (wet mill) is one out of three wet mills of the New Ngariama Cooperative Society in Kirinyaga in Central Kenya. Kainamui was the first factory under this society which was established in 1997. They have proven to be very consistent in quality over the last years, and have great systems for traceability and quality control.
They are Rainforest Alliance certified, and have established soaking pits for waste water treatment. Kamwangi collects cherries from about 1000 smallholders with an average of 0,4 hectares of coffees, about 250 trees each. Fermentation is done with Fresh River Water. The same water is recycled during the day through a recycling process enabling them to significantly reduce water consumption.
The farmers under the New Ngariama Cooperative in Kirinyaga are located on the slopes of Mount Kenya and together with the neighbouring region Nyeri it’s known for coffees with the most intense, complex, and flavor-dense cup profiles worldwide.
