Our Karimikui AA microlot was produced by the Rungeto Farmers Cooperative in Kenya's, Kirinyaga County. The Karimikui Co-op represents nearly 3000 farmers with an average farm size of 550 hectares. This microlot is comprised of mostly SL 28, SL 34 with some Ruiri 11 and Batian.
Timely and selective hand picking is carried out in Karimikui. Cherry is delivered to wet mill the same day it is picked. Cherry sorting is carried out at the wet mill prior to the pulping. Red ripe cherries are separated from underipes, overipes and foreign matter. Processing utilizes clean Nyamindi River water (wet processing) that is recirculated before disposal into seepage pits. Sun drying on raised tables is done before delivery of the coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing.
