このウォッシングステーションは、ムクルヴェイニ・ニエリ郡にある小規模農家が所有しており、0.2ha程のいくつもの小さな農園はトゥムトゥム丘陵とケニア山高地の間に広がっています。これらの農園は標高1750mから1820mの高地にあり、マガンジョは他の2つのステーション/工場とともにルムキア協同組合の一部となっています。コーヒー豆を納品する農家は約800軒あります。農家は小規模農園で混農を実践しており、現金収入を得るための主要作物としてコーヒーを栽培し、家族で消費するためのトウモロコシ、豆、ジャガイモ、野菜などの食料品も栽培しています。

熟したコーヒーチェリーが収穫・水洗され、工場に運ばれた後、果肉除去され、24時間乾燥発酵されます。その後、ラガティ川のきれいな水で水洗され、高床式乾燥機で乾燥されます。

グレープフルーツのような柑橘系の酸とブルーベリーやラズベリーなどのベリー系の酸が広がり、マンゴーに似た甘味と胡桃のペーストのようなほのかな甘味、クリーミーな口当たりが特徴です。
