Coffee Story: Kiandu coffee factory was formed in 1970 under Tetu coffee growers coop out of 18 factories then during 1989 it merged into Mutheka FCS. In 2011 it became a society of its own. It has 1,524 active members. Each of these farmers on average grows 200 or so coffee trees and most farms grow other crops such as maize, beans, and sweet potato.
The Kiandu Coffee Factory (also society) is located at Karundu location and Kiandu sub-location in Nyeri County.
After picking, the ripe coffee cherry is brought to the factory by the farmers, before it is processed to remove the skin and pulp, before coffee undergoes a dry fermentation to break down the mucilage sticking to the parchment, staying in the fermentation tanks for eighteen to 24 hours. Then, coffee travels through washing channels to ensure all the pulp is removed and goes through one final overnight soak before being spread out on raised drying tables where it stays for 7-15 days, depending on climate, ambient temperature and the amount of coffee being processed.
In line with the rising awareness on the need to conserve the environment, the factory has dug the waste water soak pits away from the water source where the waste water is allowed to soak in back to the soil. Currently the factory does not engage in waste water treatment. Additionally the society encourages its members to plant trees on their farms.
