THE STORY OF MURAMUKI
From the northern part of Embu County in Kenya comes a creamy and complex coffee that balances its delicate grapefruit acidity with lush notes of tropical fruit and honey. It undergoes a fresh stream water washed process and is then sun-dried on raised beds. This coffee is produced by the Kathangariri factory, which is the only factory operated by Muramuki FCS -- an independent operation as of 2000. The society rents out its premises to a cooperative bank to pay their overheads, which allows the farmer to receive a larger proportion of their sale proceeds. Because Kathangariri is situated very close to the forests at the foothills of Mt. Kenya, elephants, buffalo, and other wild animals are regular visitors!
