Kenya Embu Thambana Kathima AA is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Kathima Factory (wet mill) located in Embu County, Kenya, a growing region in the fertile foothills of Mount Kenya. 750 active farmers deliver their harvested cherry to be processed at the Kathima Factory (wet mill), which is managed by the Thambana Farmers Co-operative Society. Farmer plots are so small that measurements are based on the numbers of trees, not area of land. Cooperative members generally cultivate around 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots intercropped with Bananas, Grevillea, and Macadamia trees.
