New Weithaga FCS is located in the heart of the Muranga county. The fertile volcanic soils and the unique microclimate offer perfect conditions to grow excellent coffee. The water used to process the coffee comes from the Aberdare Mountain range.
At the Kahindu factory, all the cherries are being processed the same day they are being harvested. Once the members arrive at the factory, they have to handsort their cherries. Once the cherries have then been pulped, the parchment is left in the tans overnight for fermenting. The next day, the parchment is washed and graded into P1, P2, P3 and P lights. Once transferred on the raised drying beds, the parchment is then dried for 15-21 days.
The members of the Kahindu factory are taking back the cherry pulps to the farm. There, it is being used as fertilizer for the coffee trees.
