TRACEABILITY



Kabete Factory is located in the Central Highlands of Kenya, only 30 km north of Nairobi within Kiambu district. It is a member of the Kabete & Mugaga Farmers Cooperative Society.

Farmers in Kabete belong to the Kikuyu tribe, probably the biggest tribe of Kenya. The Coop has 251 active members. Each member on average, owns about 225 coffee trees, and most farms also grow other crops such as corn, beans, and cassava. The cooperative produces only 1517 kg of green coffee per year in an estimated cultivated area of 4 hectares.

The area enjoys a cool climate with temperatures ranging between 12°C and 18.7°C. The rainfall average for the county is 1000 mm each year. The cool climate and the volcanic soil make the area conductive for coffee farming with big yields. June and July rank as the coldest months, while January-March and September-October are the hottest months.

Kiambu only, accounts for more than 30% of the total coffee production of Kenya. There are approximately 51.000 active grower members in 22 coops. The altitude range of the cultivated areas of Kiambu is the second highest in the country after Nyeri, and it goes from 1520 to 2200 masl.
