Kagaa Farmers Cooperative Society

You can find Kagaa station in boroughs of Kahuro, Mugoiri in the very well known region Muranga at the altitude of 1630-1850masl. We discovered this newly opened station through our friend Pero Nordby, a green coffee importer from Sweden. He went to Kenya and lived at the Kagaa station with his family throughout the harvest season. We are delighted that we managed to buy three microlots form there (AA, AB and PB). The station received an export license last year so our microlots are only the second harvest they have produced. Kagga buys coffee from 609 farmers (409 men, 200 women). Only three men work at the station during a year. Twenty people get hired for the harvest.

Varieties

It is common in Kenya that the stations buy coffees from several farmers who grow a mixture of different varieties like SL28/SL34 or new and more disease resistant varities Batian or Ruira 11. These new varieties yield more then the tradiotional SL. Hence they are becoming more popular.

Processing

The first (main) season lasts form October to January, the second season from March to April. The skin and part of of flesh are removed in a "depulper" (see picture below). Cherries are then fermented in concrete tanks over night for 12-16 hours. They are washed and put on African beds and dried in the sun for 7-15 days afterwards.
