The Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) consists of the Karimikui, Kii, and Kiangoi factories in the Kirinyaga region of Kenya. They are situated 4 kilometers from Mt. Kenya National Park. This floral and tropical coffee comes from the Kii factory which is located in the southern foothills of Mount Kenya on rich red volcanic soil. At the Kii factory only the ripest cherries are delivered, and additional hand sorting and floating is done to remove less dense and damaged beans before the coffee is depulped, fermented and washed. After the coffee is washed, it is soaked in fresh water for long periods of time to solidify the hallmark Kenyan profiles. The Kii Coffee Factory is operated by the Rung’eto Farmers Cooperative Society, and comprises cherry contributions from 1,214 members, who own an average farm size of about 1/3rd a hectare(400 trees).
