Farm Story


Gicherori factory was opened in 1997 and is operated by the Kibugu Farmers Cooperative Society (F.C.S.). There are around 1,050 smallholder farmer members, who deliver their cherry to the factory the same day it's harvested. It is depulped using a three-disc depulping machine after being sorted and separated. The coffee is fermented overnight, then washed using fresh water, and spread on raised beds to dry for 7–15 days.


The factory and its member farmers receive assistance and training from Coffee Management Services (CMS), which offers farmer education, "Good Agricultural Practices" seminars, and distributes a sustainable-farming handbook.
