Kamagogo is one of four factories operated by the Kiru Farmers Cooperative Society. This F.C.S. is very interested in improving its infrastructure and has invested in grading tables, better drying beds, and advanced depulping equipment. There is also a water-soaking pit on-site, which is used to purify the water used in the processing and prevent contamination to any freshwater sources.


Muranga county is situated on the western slope of the Aberdare Mountains. The soil is rich and red with a climate that is cooler than most of Kenya. There are many valleys and streams throughout the area, where 80% of the population is reliant on agriculture, and most coffee producers operate on less than one hectare of land. 


Most of Kenya's coffee is produced by smallholders delivering to factories (central processing units) who predominantly produce Washed coffees. Estates are also best-known for their Washed lots. The Washed process in Kenya may vary slightly from place to place, but it generally contains a soaking step that is unique to this growing country. First the coffee is picked ripe and depulped the same day, then it is normally fermented in open-air tanks made of concrete or cement for 24–48 hours. It's then washed thoroughly using water channels before being soaked underwater for 12–72 hours. It is then spread on raised beds to dry.
