Kirinyaga County sits at the foothills of Mount Kenya, from which the county’s name is derived. Kirinyaga means the ‘crest of whiteness’ in the Kikuyu language, synonymous with the beautiful, snow-capped peaks. This county plays host to Kiangoi, the newest factory (established in 1995) of the Rung’eto Farmers Society, which serves around 1,000 coffee producers.
Kiangoi is a little different than your classic Kenyan coffee. We are finding predominant stone fruit flavours, think peach and apricot alongside refreshing citric acidity.
