Rukira is a coffee factory in the Nyeri district that has been operating since 1979. Over 500 smallholder farms contributed to this lot as part of the Othaya Farmer’s Cooperative Society, which has 15,000 members and operates four coffee factories in Nyeri.
Nyeri as a region has been facing many hardships, with local government stepping in to control how coffees were being exported in 2014, and as a result, many specialty coffee roasters were unable to maintain their buying relationships with the coffee factories in the area. Rukira has been consistently operating to the high standards of Nyeri coffee, and even throughout these hardships, has been producing amazing coffees every year. This is our third year offering coffee from Rukira, and we couldn’t be more hopeful for the future of coffee in Nyeri.
