The Gatomboya factory (or washing station) receives and processes coffee cherries from 1300 small-holder farmers from around the the town of Mathira. Each farmer has on average 250 coffee trees, which will end up producing just shy of two 69 kg sacks of green coffee. Gatomboya is a factory that is part of the Barichu Farmers’ Cooperative society. This large member-run entity oversees the management and operation of four factories around Nyeri. The word Gatomboya is a Kikuyu word and refers to the fact that there is a water source nearby, namely the Gatomboya river.
