county is located between Nyeri and Thika in the heart of traditional
Kikuyu territory. The region has a strong history in coffee production
dating back around 100 years. The terroir is characterised by cool
highlands boasting well drained and fertile red-brown clay soils. The
Muranga factory is serviced by fresh water running from the slopes of Mt
Kenya and the Aderdare mountain range.
The combination of high elevation,
cool temperatures, good water supply and abundant sunshine allows the
coffees from the region to mature slowly, producing exceptional
complexity in the cup.
This has been scored 87.5 by the SCA.
