This coffee hails from the Gondo factory located in Muranga, an adjacent county to Nyeri. Consequently, the coffees from this region tend to exhibit similar cup profiles characterized by their intensity, complexity, and rich flavors. Gondo primarily sources its coffee from smallholder farms, which are organized into cooperative societies serving as overarching bodies for the processing facilities, commonly referred to as wet mills. These wet mills are where the smallholder farmers deliver their coffee cherries for processing. Gondo is one of the three factories managed by the New Kiriti Farmers Cooperative Society, alongside Kayu and Kirimahiga. Situated at an elevation of 1900 meters above sea level, this factory produces exceptional coffee.
The area experiences robust competition, with many farmers having multiple wet mills in close proximity. Farmers are afforded the liberty to choose where they wish to deliver their coffee cherries as members of the cooperative. The traditional auction system in Kenya emphasizes quality, leading to higher prices for superior beans. Consequently, the top-performing factories not only command the highest prices for their coffee but also attract more farmers while ensuring a generous payback to those cultivating the beans.
