Situated within the cool Limuru zone, the Kamundu Estate is located in the Central Highlands of Kenya sharing a border with Nakuru and Kajiado to the West, Murang’a and Nyandarua to the North and Nairobi to the South. The Estate was established in 1954 producing roughly 1,600 MT of cherries each year with both UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certifications.
Kiambu is famous for its coffee estates, which were started by British colonists in the early 20th century, now being run by local Kenyans after independence in the 1960s. The coffee is grown throughout the region on healthy deep red volcanic soils high in nutrients and organic matter. This soil is ideal for coffee production and give the trees the necessary resources to allocate energy to high-quality coffee production.
