Nestled in between small tea farms and low laying clouds.
Kanake Factory is part of a larger Cooperative (Komothai), which manages 12 washing stations (called factories in Kenya). This scale can be an advantage, in this case, allowing Kanake to take over a dry mill to see their coffee all the way through. And the coop makes more when they keep milling in-house.
Cherries are pulped then fermented in tanks for 24-36 hours before washing through grading channels and dried on raised beds for 7 - 14 days with regular turning.
