About Konyu AB
The Kabare FCS is located in Kirinyaga and is composed of 11 factories. They are on different altitudes, some of them just bordering the Mount Kenya forest. Most of the farmers delivering their cherries to Kabare are planting SL28 and SL34 varieties. The name Konyu comes from the nearby stream, which
water is also used for processing.
The cherries are being handsorted before pulping. The parchment is then fermented overnight in tanks in order to break the sugars of the pulp. After fermentation, the parchment is then
washed and graded.
