About Kahete AB

Kahete Factory was established in 1984 and is currently under the management of Rwaikamba Farmers Cooperative. Kahete serves over 600 coffee producers within the communities of Karunge, Gataragwa, and Kirimiya. Coffee is harvested biannually between March through May or October through December.

After coffee cherry is harvested it is brought to the factory and then weighed. Smallholder farmers collect their earnings at that time. Coffee cherry is then sent through a disk depulper removing most of the fruit, fermented for 24-hours then washed again making the entire process 72-hours. Time in which parchment coffee dries heavily depends on the climate, ambient temperature, and volume being processed which could take up to 15 days and as little as one week.
