Kibirigwi Farmers Cooperative Society operates the Nguguini Factory, which was founded in 1958. There are about 1,200 contributing members who deliver cherry to the factory, each growing coffee alongside other crops on about 1/8 of a hectare each, average. The farmers bring their cherry to the factory for sorting and processing as soon as it is picked. The coffee is depulped, then fermented underwater for 15–24 hours before being washed three times and spread on metallic drying tables for 6–16 days.The factory’s participating members are assisted by field workers who train and provide advice on pruning, weeding, spraying, applying fertilizer and mulch, and granting other technical advice. There are also farmer training programs and field days provided by the ministry of agriculture.
ABOUT The Roaster
We are a small coffee roastery from Bulgaria.
We are inspired by the hard work that goes into producing, the complexity of roasting and the culture of enjoying great coffee. In sourcing our coffee we look for high quality, traceability and transparency. In roasting we look for sweetness, consistency and balance. We believe that great coffee should be accessible to everyone.
