 Our first Kenyan Coffee Offering, Nyeri Barichu Gatomboya AA is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Gatomboya Factory (wet mill) in Nyeri County, Kenya. The Barichu Farmers Co-operative Society Limited manages the Gatomboya Factory, which processes coffee from 600 members who generally cultivate approximately 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots.

Barichu is a big advocate of sustainable farming practices and encourages its members to plant shade trees, recycle pulp as organic fertilizer and plant grass to conserve soil. A team of full-time agronomists model out these techniques on the co-op's demo station plot. In addition, Barichu sets a high bar in payouts as its members receive 95% of their coffees' price versus the industry's 82% . Members also receive credit for farm inputs, school fees, and medial emergencies.
