Gaturiri coffee factory is a member of the Barichu Cooperative Society, processing coffee for around 1100 coffee producers in Nyeri, Central Province.
The station is renowned for the quality of coffee processed there. Each coffee cherry is hand-picked then delivered to the station for pulping. The beans go through two stages of fermentation before being washed, soaked, then slowly dried. The resulting flavour is rich and complex.
As cooperative members, farmers are given credit to allow them to pay for school fees and farm improvement, and given access to research and education on coffee growing practices.
