Cecilia Wanjiku Haniel, owner of Faith Estates, has an impressive and expansive presence. She is a founding member of a group of more than 30 small estate owners in Kirinyaga who meet monthly for trainings, business planning, and to share coffee growing and processing knowledge.

After selective handpicking, Cecilia pulps cherry on a small drum pulper. Then, she dry ferments her coffee for 24 hours. After fermentation, she washes parchment in clean water and lays it to dry on raised beds.
