DescriptionStart the tour with pickup from your accommodation in the city, and head to Karunguru Coffee Farm, located just an hour drive outside of Nairobi. Coffee was introduced to Kenya in 1893 and the first crop of Karunguru Coffee was planted in 1928 by a British family known as the Glassfords before Kenya received its independence from the British government. It is evident therefore, that as far back as 1928, the history of coffee growing has been an integral part of the Karunguru heritage. Explore the farm on a short welcome tour, and learn about the history of the farm and the process of growing, harvesting and making coffee.
