Kamwangi is a washing station, or factory, as they are called in Kenya, which is owned by the New Ngariama Farmer's Cooperative Society, in the Kirinyaga district.

It sits on the slopes of Mt. Kenya in the agriculturally rich Central Province at 1,610 meters above sea level.

Kenyan coffees are almost universally processed using a method called ‘double fermentation’, which is a variation of the washed processing method.
Almost all producers across Kenya use only this method, and it is considered the best practice by many.

In the double fermentation processing method, farmers depulp the cherries immediately after harvest and place the mucilage-coated seeds in fermentation tanks, keeping the contact with water at the minimum, for 12 to 24 hours depending on the rate of fermentation.


The fermentation helps break down the mucilage making it easier to remove, but also helps develop the mucilage’s latent fruit properties, imparting some of those properties into the coffee seed.
