The Muthuaini factory is located in Nyeri, on the southern part of Mt.Kenya.
Muthuaini is a Kikuyu phrase meaning a place with many ants.” And indeed, it’s famous for the ants that nearly destroyed everything, including a plantation of sugarcane.
However, the area was so fertile and ideal for farming, the residents had no intention of giving it up without a fight, and those ants are mostly now just a memory.
At the mill, coffee is fermented in fresh water from the Thuta River and dried in the sun on raised beds. Approximately 550 producers contributed to this coffee.
