Kegwa Station is part of the Ngiriambu Cooperative Society established in 1997 as a Coffee and Marketing Society. Today, Ngiriambu has 4,500 registered members to whom it provides ongoing support and services, including 2x coffee processing
Kiri and Kegwa stations. The latter was established in 1979 and currently serves 1,900 smallholder farmers in the Njukiini area of Kirinyaga County on the slopes of Mount Kenya.
The station borders the Njukiini Forest, so the microclimate is very cool throughout the year. This area is characterized by bimodal precipitation and temperatures from 10 to 26 degrees. Long rains fall in March-May, just in the flowering period before the main harvest.
Kirinyaga District is located on the southern slope of the highest mountain in the country - Mt. Kenya (5199m). Due to the aridity (the farms are located at an altitude of 1,500-1,560 meters above sea level), fertile volcanic soils and a tropical climate, coffee from Kirinyaga is considered one of the best
in Kenya and is characterized by a smooth body and bright acidity.
