The coffee trees on the farm are 50-70yrs old. The coffee was disc pulped, fully fermented and washed then sundried on elevated drying tables. Consolidated parchment volumes were then delivered to dry mills where they were hulled and graded according to size and density.Kiambu County is located in the Central highlands of Kenya in the former Central Province sharing its borders with five other counties; Nakuru and Kajiado to the West, Murang'a and Nyandarua to the North and Nairobi to the South.Kiambu lies at the foot of The Aberdare Ranges named after Lord Aberdare in the 20th Century. It is source of many rivers including River Chania and poses homage to wildlife.
