The Kii washing station was established in 1996. Together with the Karimikui and Kiangoi washing stations, they form the Rungeto Farmers Cooperative Society.
In total, Rungeto works with around 3500 farmers who grow their coffee on small plots of land and deliver their cherries to the washing stations. Today, approximately 55% of all coffee production in Kenya comes from smallholder farms. Farmers take ripe cherries to be processed in centralized washing stations, where they are pulped, fermented, washed and sun dried in African beds. The coffee is delivered to a drying station. The parchment coffee produced by the Kii factory, for example, is processed by the Sasini drying station.
ABOUT The Roaster
SlowMov is a project based on quality and traceability. We select the best coffee beans and roast them in Barcelona every week to always get a fresh and tasty coffee. We take into account the impact of our activity on the environment and we try to reduce and reuse waste. For example, our coffee packs are compostable and printed with ink made from our coffee grounds.
