Farm or Region History / Background

Karogoto is the biggest factory in terms of volume within the Tekangu FCS. The name Tekangu consists of the names of the three initial factories: Tegu, Karogoto and Ngunguru.


Farm / Estate / Processing / Techniques

The first step is for the farmers to sort their cherries. Only the ripe cherries are being accepted for pulping. After pulping, the parchment is left in the tanks so that it can ferment overnight. Once the parchment is fermented it is separated into P1, P2, P3 and P lights and dried for 10-16 days. The factory uses raised beds to dry the parchment. Also, they are trying to replace the wooden ones with more robust metallic ones.


Environmental/ Sustainability, Social/ Community Development

Ephraim, the factory manager is very keen about the quality of the coffee produced. He is checking every step from when the cherries are being delivered up to the dispatching of the parchment for milling.
