First established in 1998, the mill where we buy the coffee from, named the Kangunu Farmers’ Co-operative Society, currently supports nearly 1,700 smallholder producers who bring their cherries to the Factory. Located within the Mathioya division in the Njumbi location, Nyakienga Sub-location of the Muranga County – the Factory was opened by the Minister of Agriculture, Hon. Masinde Muliro. 

Each producer will handpick the coffee on their land, before carrying the cherries to the Factory. Here, the Kangunu stream provides water to wash the coffee and remove the skin and pulp. The stream also powers the electrical pumps to move the water to reservoir tanks before the initiation of processing. After water washes over the coffee cherries, it is cleaned and reused for future lots. The Factory utilizes a disc pulper with three sets of discs to peel away the skin and pulp from the inner parchment.

As soon as the coffee is clean and free from any pulp – the beans are ready for fermentation. This occurs by placing the coffee in large tanks for 12-24 hours depending on the temperature. However, producers are beginning to experiment with different fermentation times to develop new and unique flavour profiles. Fermentation allows for the breakdown of the sugars still attached to the coffee’s surface. The mucilage breaks down – leaving on the parchment, or outer skin.

From here – the coffee is ready to be dried. The parchment (coffee beans with exterior skin attached) are moved to drying tables in the open sun for 10-22 days. The parchment is regularly turned to prevent mould growth. The goal is to obtain a slower drying time to achieve a more balanced and complex cup. The time on the table depends on the climate and the amount of coffee on each table

Dutch Colony have always look forward yearly to new harvest from Kenya and with this Kangunu AB having a myriad of flavours that is palate teasing, overtones of red apples, subtle blackcurrants when cooled and well balanced, it will definitely not be the last you see us having this available again in our roastery.
