Kenya Baragwi Thimu Peaberry

from 6.00

This offering comes from the Thimu wet mill that is part of a larger co-op. The word thimu means “proverbs” in Kikuyu; in the past, planters would congregate in this spot during breaks to learn Kikuyu proverbs from their elders. These lessons, passed down through generations, were considered essential to wisdom and understanding in the Kikuyu community. Today, the Thimu mill operates in a place steeped with the history of centuries of coffee planters. The Kiringa river provides fresh water, necessary for effective fermentation. About 3000 farmers use the Thimu wet mill to process their harvest.

The Baragwi Farmers Co-op is named after the small village where it is located. Rich with volcanic soil, this region is recognized for a smooth body that supports the dynamic acidity which makes Kenyan coffees so unique. The Baragwi Cooperative has more than 16,892 registered members. These members are drawn from the 12 wet mills which form the society. The society has a workforce of 137 staff members out of which 31 are female and 106 are male.

The Society’s head office is situated at Kianyaga market at the end of Kutus/Kianyaga tarmac road. The society was registered in October of 1953 to promote social economic interests of its members, processing and exporting coffee and access to better markets.
