Thunguri is a true testament to the greatness of Kenyan coffees. The Thunguri coffee factory is a small operation run by Simon Mathenge. In 2012 our Green Coffee Buyer and our Director of Quality Control, Jeff & Maritza Taylor, had the opportunity to visit during the harvest. 

The coffee from Thunguri is grown by many small lot farmers in the area. SL-28, SL-34 and Ruiru 11 are grown at nearly 5400 feet before being brought to be washed and sun-dried on raised beds at the factory. The Thunguri processing factory is located in the Central Province of the Kirinyaga District, near the town of Karatina. Established in 1987, the factory serves as the central processing station for several small lot farmers in Gathundie, Gathiruini, Thunguri, and Kaguyuu Villages. There are roughly 800 active small lot farmers.
