North of Nairobi, near the border with Nyeri County sits Muranga'a, a densely populated city on the edge of the forest. Surrounding the city are hills made from red volcanic soil, laden with coffee and crops for local consumption. The cool temperatures and damp air in the hills slow down the growth of the coffee, ensuring acidity, complexity, and layered sweetness. The harvests here are on average 97% SL-28 & 34, and 3% Ruiri & Batian.
