Built in the 1970s, Nigurueri, the washing station we purchased this lot from, now has almost 1,100 smallholder farmers and is one of four washing stations apart of the Murue Cooperative.
The farmers in this region grow a mixture of SL-28 and SL-34 cultivars at altitudes of 1760 meters. The small farms are gathered on the eastern slopes of Mount Kenya, providing the perfect mixture of morning sun and cool nighttime temperatures.
In addition to producing stunning coffees, the Murue Farmers Cooperative Society is also known for maintaining a transparent model and providing documented payment scales.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel. We are verve. Made in santa cruz.
