1 Day: Karunguru Coffee Farm Day
Karunguru coffee strives to bring the top-grade coffee that is grown here to the consumer market. Having farmed coffee for many years, we now want to bring our decades of knowledge and expertise in coffee farming to your cup! Over and above that, we would like to offer you a once in a lifetime opportunity to come learn the process which our coffee goes through. Be a part of our heritage.
While Coffee was introduced into Kenya in 1893, the first crop of Karunguru Coffee was planted in 1928 by a British family known as the Glassfords before Kenya received its independence from the British government. It is evident therefore that as far back as 1928, the history of coffee growing has been an integral part of the Karunguru heritage. In 1974, our Grand Father and Patriarch (Mr. Kariithi Karekia), bought and took over the 300acre farm and grew it to 500acres of a vast coffee farm.
You will be met by our tour guide from your hotel then taken on a tour of a coffee farm. Tour the farm and see how coffee is planted from the seedbed. Discuss with the management what it takes to grow coffee. See the fumigation process in action, both manual and mechanical. See the picking process of coffee from the farms and then tour the Local coffee factory and see the cleaning, the grading, and the packing processes.
