ABOUT THE BEAN
Gathaithi farmers’ cooperative society was registered under the cooperative society act of 2000. It was formerly part of the Giant Tetu coffee farmer’s society. This cooperative has only one factory – Gathaithi coffee factory. Currently, it has 1,656 active members. The Gathaithi factory was the overall winner of the 2016/17 'Best of Dormans' quality competition, as voted by an international panel on importers and roasters.
In line with the rising awareness on the need to conserve the environment, the factory has dug the waste water soak pits away from the water source where the waste water is allowed to soak in back to the soil. Currently the factory does not engage in waste water treatment. Additionally the society encourages its members to plant trees on their farms.
