Description

Njemu Estate was founded in 1998 by Irene and Simon Nyaga. It’s a small affair, just over 3 hectares producing just over 100 bags a year. But while this is over three times the output from a decade ago, volume was never the goal at Njemu. Rather, legacy – the farm is named after the Nyaga’s two sons, Njeru and Muchiri, and intended as their inheritence.

And that’s because this was the land that Simon grew up on in the 1960’s, and inherented in the 80’s while putting himself (and his siblings) through university; Simon received a degree in Agricultral Economics and currently acts as the Estate’s agronomist. Irene, on the other hand, is in charge – let’s say of management; both of the farm’s staff, and it’s trees. Between the two of them they have what it takes to produce at the top end of what’s possible, from the already standards in place for coffees from Mt. Kenya.
