About the Producer
Gatuya Coffee Factory is operated by the Mwirua Farmers Cooperative Society, which has about 900 active members. The factory was built on about 5 acres of land in the 1970s, and serves the local villages of Getyua and Barichu. The factory employs five permanent staff and a host of seasonal workers, depending on the size of the harvest any given year.
This factory is affiliated with Coffee Management Services, which provides technical support, access to inputs, and information about sustainable farm practices. Farmers receive pre-financing as needed, and are also eligible for ongoing and recurring training through CMS.
