About Karani AA

Karani is a Kikuyu name of a person who was the owner of the farm where the factory was built. The area was very fertile for agricultural production, and therefore was very viable for the factory, which was constructed and opened for processing in 1998. Mt Kenya’s famous snow-capped peaks and sprinkler irrigation system taking place across the Ragati River, on the famous Kibirigwi Irrigation Scheme, all give the area a beautiful scenery.
The cherries are hand-sorted 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.
