ABOUT ME
Built in 1976, the Rianjagi Factory and Rianjagi Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS) are owned by the farmers. Farmers receive a variety of support from the FCS, including farm inputs, farmer trainings and marketing for their coffee.  

Farmers delivering to Rianjagi washing station cultivate primarily SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 and Batian in small coffee gardens that are on average, smaller than 1 hectare. ‘SL’ varieties are cultivars originally released by Scott Agricultural Laboratories (SAL) in the 1930s and 1940s. They soon became the go-to trees for many growers in Kenya due to their deep root structure, which allows them to maximize scarce water resources and flourish even without irrigation. They are cultivated with a serious eye towards sustainability and Good Agricultural Practices, with minimal environmental impact where possible.  

For this coffee, farmers selectively handpick ripe, red cherry and deliver it to Rianjagi Factory. At intake, a cherry clerk oversees all cherry and ensure only the highest quality is accepted. Cherry is then pulped and fermented in tanks for 12 to 16 hours. Following fermentation, parchment is washed in clean water and laid on raised beds to dry. Parchment is raked frequently to ensure even drying.  

This is a lovely Kenyan coffee, clean and crisp with sparkling acidity and a lively mouthfeel.
