The Getua Coffee Factory is located in Kirinyaga county, Mwirua location of Ndia Division near Kerugoya town. It was established in the 1970’s and covers a total of five acres. Currently, there are 1000 members, 900 of which were active contributors to this year’s offerings.

Once members harvest ripe cherries and deliver them to the Getua Coffee Factory the coffee is depulped using a 3-disc pulper. After the skin and fruit is removed from the bean, the coffee is fermented overnight to break down the sugars. In the morning, the water used is drained out and sent to soaking pits where it is slowly recirculated. The coffee is then cleaned, soaked, and spread out on raised beds. This process can take anywhere from 7 to 15 days until the coffee finds a stable and desirable moisture content. During this time, coffee is hand sorted as it is turned on the beds.
