As for Kathima from the same Cooperative, this Kiungu AB was one of those coffees that was discovered through blind cupping in origin. The Kathima factory is under the Thambana Cooperative society, located in Embu, a neighbouring region to Kirinyaga at the slopes of Mount Kenya. Kiungu is in Nginda Location, Manyatta division of Embu County, 16km from Embu town, located on the rich green slopes of Mt. Kenya almost on the Equator. Name of Farm / Cooperative Thambana Farmers Co-operative Society. Kiungu is the name of the factory.
We have seen way more great coffees from Embu lately than in the past. They are supported by Tropical farm management, a company that supports small holders to increase their coffee production as well as help the factories on quality control and traceability related to processing.
