Gitutu is one of four factories operated by the Aguthi Farmers Cooperative Society, and is located in a highly productive growing area that is bordered by Mt. Kenya in the west and the Abadare Ranges to the east. The F.C.S. has seven elected committee members to represent its 4,000 total membership. The committee and about 60 permanent factory staff oversee day-to-day operations with regards to receipt of cherry, payment, and processing. About 800 farmers from Aguthi F.C.S. deliver to this factory, and they own on average about 300 coffee trees each.

Gitutu factory has several seepage tanks to prevent contamination between used and clean water.

The location

Coffee from Kenya

Alongside Ethiopia and Colombia, Kenya is one of the origins we get most excited about at the roastery. It exports some of the most vibrant, bright, and unique coffees in the world.

The Nyeri region of Kenya

Central region home to Mount Kenya, an extinct volcano that produces rich, red soil. Most commonly smallholder cooperatives. Coffee trees in this region produce two crops (the main harvest producing the higher quality lots)

Farm processes

Washed process

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.
