Approximately 85 miles northeast of Nairobi is Murang'a County. This is the home of Iyego Coffee Growers Cooperative. The cooperative is made up of about 670 farmers that have, on average, just over 70 acres of land each. Their coffee is grown in the areas just east of the Aberdare mountains at an altitude of 1300-1950 meters above sea level. The ripe cherries are hand picked at their peak and delivered to the wash plant for processing.
