Rukira Kenya

Rukira wet mill was first built in1979, in the heart of Nyeri County in Central Kenya. It is located in Rukira Village. The wet mill processes cherries from more than 670 smallholder farmers in the surrounding Nyeri highlands, who combine their cherries at the mill. The region has cool temperatures and red volcanic soils rich in phosphorus, making it ideal conditions for growing coffee.

The Nyeri region is traditionally known as "the heart of Kenya".

Most of the coffees from Nyeri develop and mature slowly, producing extra-hard beans. Farmers predominantly grow the SL28 and SL34 varietals, combing them together before transporting them to Rukira wet mill.

Rukira's coffee cherries are carefully picked on if they are ripe. After wet pulping, the wet fermentation process takes place for 12-18 hours in concrete tanks under shade. Coffee is then placed on raised beds for 12-21 days until the moisture level is 10-12%.
