This coffee comes from the Kabingara Coffee Factory located in Kirinyaga County and is a member of the Karithathi Farmers Cooperative Society. There are several varietals in this lot, notably SL28, Ruiru 11 and a little Batian, all hybrids noted for either their drought or disease resistance. "SL" varieties, which are Bourbon derivatives, were developed decades ago by Scott Labs for the best flavors and are now being reproduced in areas around the world when conditions are right. The region has deep, fertile well drained red volcanic soils which are ideal for coffee production though many of the area farmers grow tea.
