COMING SOON – WE ARE CURRENTLY PROFILING THIS COFFEE
This coffee, pronounced “khin-a-moo-ee” comes from a washing station situated in Ngariama location, Gichugu division of Kirinyaga District. Kainamui is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya in the agriculturally rich Central Province. It lies at an altitude of 1,800 metres above sea level which makes it ideal for coffee production.
The Kainamui factory has 1800 members, 1100 of whom are men and 700 of whom are women. These producers are very small, owning on average just 200 trees. Varieties grown by these members are SL28 and SL32. With ideal conditions for coffee growing, farmers benefit from the mineral-rich red volcanic loam soils and high altitudes that are typical of the area. The Kainamui factory supports its members by providing them with advances for school fees, farm support and other emergency funds. They also provide agronomy training for all members.
This coffee is a beautifully balanced cup with a smooth taste profile. A coffee that is grown and produced with great care that has helped improve the local community.
