From Our Importer:
Smallholder farms near the town of Gatundu sell their coffee cherries to the nearby factory, Githembe, which was built in 1969. Around 1,500 farmers contributed to this lot.
Cherries are delivered to the wet mill the same day they are picked, then sorted prior to pulping. The coffee is then sun-dried on raised beds before being sent to the dry mill for secondary processing.
