Gatomboya is one of the four washing stations in the Barichu Farmers Cooperative Society. The others factories are Karatina, Karindundu and Gaturiri. The Barichu FCU services 4000 smallholder coffee producers. G
atomboya specifically services around a quarter of those. Apart from its outstanding flavour complexity, one of the reasons why we love buying coffees from Gatomboya is the strong management of the cooperative society behind the mill. Barichu is known for taking good care of its member producers and the nearby community.
The Cooperative Society built a coffee shop on the factory grounds that services travellers on the nearby road. The income of this shop helps lower the overhead costs for the management of the cooperative and factories.
