About the Kenyan Ndaro-Ini Factory
Factory Ndaro-Ini Wetmill is a factory built in 1984 and run by the Gikanda Farmers Co-operative Society. The GFCS delivers the coffee to the Ndaro-Ini factory in addition to two other wet mills. This last one was founded in 1996, is one of the most well-known cooperatives in Central Kenya, and produces regularly stellar lots of coffee.
Ndaro-Ini has an unusual water spring source to wash their coffee beans, providing them a competitive advantage compared to other factories. The wet mill processes coffee from 700 smallholder farmers around Gatundu town. GFCS has invested heavily in their factories and producers by putting lots of resources into ensuring that the processing goes perfectly.
