Karogoto Factory is located near the town of Karatina in the city of Nyeri. Karogoto is the biggest factory managed by Tekangu Farmers Cooperative Society. The name Tekangu consists of the names of the three initial factories: Tegu, Karogoto, and Ngunguru. The factory is managed by Ephraim Maina with more than 1800 active farmer members delivering cherry to this station.
Ephrain is very strict about the quality of the cherry they receive. Cherry is hand-sorted for ripeness and floated before accepted and depulped each day. After the coffee is washed, it’s soaked in fresh water to stop sugar fermentation and clean the parchment. The coffee is dried over 2 weeks on raised beds to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for optimal drying.
