Situated in the shadow of the mighty Mt Kenya, Kathangariri Coffee Factory has developed a reputation for producing some of the best quality coffees in Kenya. Several hundred growers supply their coffee cherry to the factory, which is where the coffee is sorted, pulped and washed before being dried on raised beds.

Coffee is grown on small farms in rich, red volcanic soil, and is one of the few cash crops for farmers in the region. It is a vital source of income that allows the growers access to better education, fresh water and electricity.
