About the beans:
The Gaturiri factory is located 3km outside of the town of Karatina, in the Barichu location in Mathira, Nyeri. Sitting at the south-western foot of Mount Kenya, the factory is located at 1700masl, with 1500 individual farmer members contributing from the surrounding areas. The average farm size is 250 trees, with Sl28 and Ruiru 11 being the predominant varietals grown. In addition to coffee, maize, banana and beans are the main agricultural crops grown by the factory members. The factory is serviced by the Kirigu river, which carries fresh spring water from the slopes on Mount Kenya to the factory for the soaking and washing of the cherries.
