Dr. Brian Gakunga is a medical doctor, but his PhD might as well be in coffee. His father, and his father's father, have been in the coffee business since buying their farm from a British Colonist.

Completely devoted to coffee, the estate has 80,000 trees divided evenly across 8 blocks. Each block borders and draws water from the Chania river - the boundary between Kiambu and Murang'a counties. Because of this the Gakunga family has made visible efforts to be good stewards - including seepage pits, reclamation stations and a private dam which holds water and is at times visited by hippos.
