We passed a truly outstanding Saturday morning visiting the Karunguru Coffee Estate in Thika. After first being treated to a delicious cup of coffee with cookies, our wonderfully informative guide Anthony took us on a tour of the estate which was quite fascinating and made us realize how much botanical science and back-breaking physical work went into planting, nurturing and preparing coffee beans for roasting and shipment. At the tour's conclusion, we were served a lunch that was, hands down, the best meal we have had since arriving in Kenya five months ago -- delicious yam soup with garlic bread, little miniature grilled and sauced chickens in beds of pallou rice, green beans in coconut sauce, sauteed egg plant and perfectly prepared ugali with fresh vegetables. Absolutely amazing! Anthony ate with us and even helped us order a Bolt taxi for our next destination. A wonderful experience that we would recommend to anyone.

We had a nice tour lead by Anthony! The place is really beautiful and authentic. A good day activity to do at 40min drive from Nairobi.

I had spoken with Wangeci who was very helpful in planning for the day, she liaised with the staff on ground as she was not available on that particular day. My friend who was visiting us is a coffee addict :p so it was an ideal trip.
The farm is easily accessible from the main road and directions were quite straight forward. We arrived on time and were immediately served with fresh coffee and a snack.
The tour was very detailed as we walked through the farm and got to see the different stages of the coffee trees and the different varieties as well. The coffee pickers were on farm collecting and unfortunately we were unable to see them in action. We went to the small factory where they do the separation of the berries and got to see how they separate the varieties and the drying of the coffee. It was very interesting. The farm however does not process the coffee, they outsource for roasting.
The farm is quite old but well maintained. We thereafter had a hearty lunch in the mansion of the house where we got to interact with the family of the owners of the farm.
We also bought some coffee and other products. The walk was not tiring at all, it was relaxed and we got to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way. My coffee addict friend appreciated the whole experience and now appreciates her daily cups of coffee even more.

We spent an excellent day here. Nice drive out of Nairobi. Lovely old house and fascinating tour. The tour is a good walk. The less fit in our group rested on the veranda while we visited the cattle and walked around the coffee plantation. We learnt about the organic methods used on the farm. Then lunch, which was good, and an opportunity to buy some coffee before the drive back. A good day.

As real coffee addicts my wife and me always wanted to see coffee growing and processing stages. So when we went to Kenya visit to a coffee farm was an important part of our tour. We selected Karunguru coffee farm as it is not a kind of attraction for tourists but a real farm where real coffee farmers are ready to show you and explain every stage of their work. When we arrived to the farm we were warmly welcomed by Mr. Gitau, who is one of the farm managers and member of the family that owns the farm. Mr. Gitau kindly showed us the whole farm as a guide and explained us everything. The farm has lovely sights so you will definitely be impressed if you are interested in coffee. After the walk round the farm we had a very good homemade lunch at the mansion. We had a great time at the farm and recommend everyone who loves coffee to visit Karunguru Coffee Estate.
