Wahundura is a washing station – or factory, as they are called in Kenya – built in the 1960s and located in Murang’a County in Kenya’s former Central Province. It is one of four active washing stations – along with its sisters Kagumoini, Riakiberu and Karugiro – owned by the Kamachiria Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Society (FCS). Kamachiria is made up of over 5,600 producers who farm in Kenya’s central highlands.
Wahundura receives coffee cherries from 1,326 local members of the cooperative (962 male, 364 female) who grow coffee trees on nearby farms, located between 1750-1850 meters above sea level. The factory is managed by Mercyline Kamete, who oversees the collection and careful processing of the coffee cherries. Besides Mercyline, Wahundura employs five permanent staff members from the local communities and an additional five or six workers during the season.
