The Kamwangi factory lies in the northeast part of the Kirinyaga region of Kenya and is owned and managed by the New Ngariama Farmers Cooperative Society (F.C.S.).
Roughly 985 active members deliver coffee to the factory with each farmer tending to an average of 200–250 coffee trees. After harvesting, the farmers deliver cherry to Kamwangi for sorting and separating, after which it is depulped on traditional disc depulping machines. It is then fermented for 24–28 hours in tanks, then washed in thoroughly grading channels. All of the coffee goes to skin-drying beds to bring the moisture content to around 44% before being spread on traditional drying beds for 9–13 days and rotated constantly.
