KENYA - GURA - NATURAL
Founded in 1956 as a coffee marketing organization with around 250 farmers, the Othaya Farmers Co-operative Society now ranks as the largest organization of coffee producers in Kenya based on membership and number of wet mills (or “factories”). It maintains 19 factories and a dry mill in and around the town of Othaya in the world-famous Nyeri growing region, located about 90 miles north of the capital city of Nairobi and tucked in between Mt. Kenya and the Aberdare Range. The Gura Factory was established in 1984 on the slopes of Karima Hill at an altitude of 1752 meters and draws water from the nearby Gura River to depulp the coffee. The producers who deliver their coffee to Gura take great care in cultivating and picking, resulting in a complex cup that features a variety of fruit notes, and sparkling acidity that helps make Kenyan coffees so unique. Enjoy!
Othaya Farmers Cooperative Society -
Organization of 19 small wet mills (known as “factories,”) in and around the town of Othaya in Nyeri county. The society was registered in 1956 with 250 farmers and has since grown to over 15,000 members. Their offices are located in the center of town, and the Gatuyaini factory is their production center, less than a kilometer up the hill from the main office. Many factors make Othaya extraordinary, chief among them strong social unity, a holistic approach to business management and a progressive view towards quality control throughout the supply chain. The society has a nursery and farm store to supply its members with inputs, equipment and seedlings. Farm management workshops are offered regularly, and factory managers are routinely trained on wet mill best practices. Othaya has sample roasting and cupping facilities at the Gatuyaini factory, and society staff cup samples of every lot delivered during the harvest season. Also at Gatuyaini factory is a complete dry milling installation, allowing the society to manage even the parchment hulling sorting and grading elements of their operation.
