While Coffee was introduced into Kenya in 1893, 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. In 1974, our Grand Father and Patriarch (Mr.Kariithi Karekia), bought and took over the 300 acre farm and grew it to 500 acres of a vast coffee farm.
The Intervening Journey
Even after the passing of our patriarch, Karunguru is still owned by the Kariithi family who are proud to be part of a rich coffee farming culture and heritage.
