This AA lot was produced by numerous smallholder farmers, all of whom are members of the Mutheka Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) delivering to Kiandu Coffee Factory (as washing stations/wet mills are called in Kenya). The factory is located near the town of Tetu, in Kenya’s famed Nyeri County. Dedan Kimathi (liberation leader) and Wangari Maathai (Nobel peace prize laureate) are two famous Kenyans who hail from nearby.

The AA, AB and other grades used to classify lots in Kenya are an indication of screen size only. They are not any indication of cup quality. The AA grade in Kenya is equivalent to screen size 17 or 18 (17/64 or 18/64 of an inch) used at other origins. AA grades often command higher prices at auction though this grade is no indication of cup quality and an AB lot from a better farm may cup better. PB (denoting Peaberry) is the smallest screen size.
