The Nguguini Washsing station (or factory as it called in Kenya)

was built in 1958, is owned by the Kibirigwi Cooperative

Society. This society is the second largest in the county, with

eight washing stations and 7,200 members, 1,200 of whom

deliver to the Nguguini washing station. Nguguini is situated at

1,600m above sea level, with an average temperature range of

12-24°C. The mild climate and high altitude means that the

coffee cherries grown in this region are able to mature slowly,

allowing time for a high concentration of the sugars to develop

in the fruit. The region receives an annual rainfall of 1300mm,

and is covered in red volcanic soil which boasts lush topography

and voluminous coffee production. Harvest season occurs from

May–June and again in November–December, with the most

common varieties being SL-34, SL-28, Batian, and Ruiru 11.

Ruiru 11 is named for the station at Ruiru, Kenya where it was

developed in the '70s and released in 1986. Over the last decade,

Ruiru 11 has become almost as ubiquitous as the SL varieties, due

to its resistance to Coffee Berry Disease and Coffee Leaf Rust. The

variety has been backcrossed with SL28 and SL34 to ensure high cup

quality. The AA, AB and other grades used to classify lots in Kenya

are an indication of screen size only. They are not any indication of

cup quality. The AA grade in Kenya is equivalent to screen size
