Kiambu washing station is located in the East Rift Valley of Kenya at the foothills of the Aberdare ridge near Nairobi.

This washing station serves as a central hub for many growers in the towns of Thika, Ruiri, and Limuru.

The cooperative members encompass nearly 13,000 hectares on plantations and another nearly 11,000 hectares from small-holder farms comprising twenty-two active cooperative societies.

Coffee is delivered in cherry to the washing station and sorted for top quality using float tanks. Once the red cherries are separated, traditional Kenyan processing involving fermentation followed by several washes with clean water is done, and then the coffee is dried on raised beds.

Annual production from this washing station is nearly 18,000 metric tons from the estates and smallholders combined.

The cup has intense panela with cooked apple and cooked grape flavors, tart malic acidity, and mellow candy-like sweetness.
