Mutero Estate is located in Kirinyaga County, around 100 km north of Kenya’s capital Nairobi. The owner of Mutero is Mr Alvans Mutero, and the farm has around 9 acres of coffee planted with teh SL 28 & 34 varieties.
Alvans has outfitted his small factory with a small pulping machine, and several fermentation tanks and washing channels to allow him to process his won coffee adding value and then being able to sell through the second window and not being left exposed to the auction fluctuations.
After pulping, fermenting for 24 hours and washing the coffee, the parchment is dried on raised beds allowing for air circulation around the drying coffee for between 10 -14 days.
