Formerly known as Mukurwe-ni Society, Rumukia Farmer’s Cooperative Society (FCS) is comprised of 8 cooperative factories located around the small town of Mukurwe-ini, just north of the border between Nyeri and Murang’a counties. As with Othaya FCS, Rumukia is special in that the society owns their own dry milling facility, at the Thunguri wet mill. Here the Rumukia staff receive and process cherry from members of Thunguri coop, but also mill and sort all of the dry parchment coffee delivered by the other seven member factories. Rumukia FCS also has a sample roaster, cupping lab and experienced cupper on staff which is extraordinary among cooperative societies in Kenya. This additional level of quality feedback gives members of Rumukia FCS a huge advantage in the marketplace. If the quality staff at Thunguri notice any variation inthe visual aspect, odor or moisture of the coffee delivered by the coops, or any issues with cup quality, they’re able to offer corrective advice immediately.

Ripe citrus, tangerine and mandarin orange are often found in coffees from Rumukia FCS factories, alongside deep peach and apricot, molasses and port wine.
