Kiambu county is located just outside of Nairobi city. The region has a long history of coffee production and is famous for its large estates. After decolonisation, the estates were sold to local Kenyans who have been managing them since. This lot was produced in the Tinganga Estate in Kiambu county. This estate was originally built by British colonists in the early 1900s. Today it is part of the Sasini group; a public company with a majority Kenyan ownership. Sasini’s estates have long placed an emphasis on equity and community; providing living quarters, early child education, union membership and guaranteed payment above minimum wage for the estate workers. They have also invested in the local primary school Njenga Karume by building a new computer lab to provide IT education.
