About the Coffee: The Mwiria factory is strategically positioned in Kenya’s major coffee growing zone. It has a total of 1080 members who on have approximately 350 coffee trees on 1 hectare of land. Villages that take their coffee to the factory are Kirigi, Kiini, Mukangu and Kathangari. The factory employs three permanent workers and approximately 30 temporary employees during the peak season.

At Mwiria there are 9 waste-water soak pits which are enough for draining waste water and are positioned away from the river to prevent water pollution. Napier grass and trees are planted around the pits to help in purifying the waste water. The factories long-term goal is to increase coffee production through farmer training, input access, good agricultural practice seminars, and a sustainable farming handbook that is updated and distributed annually. Through pre-financing the farmer members are given advances for school fees and farm inputs. Demonstration plots are planted at the factory to reinforce the best practices taught throughout the year to the farmers.
