This coffee is named Top Mutitu, simply because it is the best this washing station had to offer.

Mutitu Coffee Factory is located on the southern slopes of Mount Kenya and was founded all the way back in 1963. It is one of the oldest washing stations in the area.

The washing station and cooperative is managed by Soweli Karimi.

Mutitu helps the farmers have a high focus on quality and taking care of the invironment. At the same time they also secure the farmes a downpayment when they deliver the cherries to the washing station, wich is uncommon in Kenya where the farmers typically has to wait until the coffee is exported to get their payment.
