The Ngurueri factory, or washing station, is located near the town of Kianjokoma in Embu County, one of the smaller counties in central Kenya and shares the borders with the forest of Mt Kenya. The Ngurueri factory is one of the 4 factories managed by the Murue FCS including Kianyangi, Kavutiri, and Gituara. They are all located near the town of Kianjokoma, in Embu County.

About 1050 smallholder farmers have a membership with the Murue FCS. Individual smallholder farmer manages an average of 250 trees each, and about half an acre of land per family.

Cherries are meticulously hand-picked and hand-sorted before being brought to the washing station. The cherries are floated upon arrival at Ngurueri. They sort the ripe cherries from underripe, overripe, and foreign matter, before being pulped. All the factories are equipped with Pinhalense eco pulpers these are more efficient and require less water in the pulping process.

The parchment goes through fermentation and is left overnight. Many factories do intermediate washing every 6-8 hours, meaning they add water, stir up the parchment and drain it again.

When fermentation is completed and the mucilage is dissolved, the parchment is washed and graded again in washing channels and graded by density. The lighter beans get washed away and the denser coffee, considered higher in quality, is soaked for approximately 16-24 hours. This process heightens the complexity of acidity in the coffee as it helps increase proteins and amino acids in the parchment.

After soaking, the coffee is moved to dry on hessian mesh for up to one day, before being taken to the drying tables. The coffee is normally dried on a surface of jute cloth or shad net layered over the table wire mesh. The drying time varies between 9-15 days depending on weather and rainfall. Constantly being turned to ensure it is dried evenly.

Ideally, grind coffee just prior to brewing for enhanced taste & aroma.
