The region of Embu is located in the South Eastern foothills of Mount Kenya, the highest mountain in the
country and second highest in Africa after Kilimanjaro. The extinct volcano forms the backdrop for much
of the surrounding country, as well as contributing to the soil fertility and cool air which allows Kenyan
coffees to develop such excellence in the cup.
Bordering Kirinyaga county to the west, Embu is one of Kenya’s traditional coffee growing regions.
Agriculture represents the largest sector of the local economy, with specialty coffee playing a significant
role as a cash crop alongside tea and macadamia nuts.
