Kagumo is a "factory" (a coffee mill) that is part of the Aguthi Farmer's Cooperative Society. It's near Gaaki, Nyeri with average farms in the area at 1600 meter altitude, red volcanic loam soils (typical for the area). There are roughly 1300 members delivering their coffee cherry to this particular wet mill. These coffees represent special attention to sorting all the way through processing. As with other good coops in Nyeri, they always have the farmer separate the ripeness of the coffee cherry before submitting it for processing, removing under-ripes that create astringency in the cup. Small things like this make a huge difference in the resulting cup flavors.
