Gathaithi Farmer’s Cooperative Society is a factory society with 1,542 active members.
Formerly part of the Giant Tetu coffee farmers society, it is located within the Tetu district, Nyeri County. I60 km north of Nairobi, the factory is situated between Mt. Kenya and the Aberdare ranges, putting it in an ideal location for quality coffee production.
From funds set aside from the previous year’s harvest, members of the cooperative can access pre-financing for school fees, access to farm inputs and funds for emergency needs. The factory is receiving assistance from a field partner: Coffee Management Services (CMS).
Their long term goal is to increase coffee production through farmer training, ready access to inputs, Good Agricultural Practice seminars, and providing the most current printed materials on sustainable farming.

Machines are used to remove the flesh from the coffee cherry before being fermented in water, washed again, and finally sun dried. This process tends to result in more distinct, cleaner flavours.
