Muranga county is located between Nyeri and Thika in the heart of traditional Kikuyu territory. The region has a strong history in coffee production dating back around 100 years. The terroir is characterised by cool highlands boasting well drained and fertile red-brown clay soils. The Muranga factory is serviced by fresh water running from the slopes of Mt Kenya and the Aderdare mountain range.
The combination of high elevation, cool temperatures, good water supply and abundant sunshine allows the coffees from the region to mature slowly, producing exceptional complexity in the cup.
