Gachatha Coffee Factory rests on a 392-acre piece of land between the villages of Muthuaini, Thiriku, Gachenge, and Kianjau in the slopes of the Aberdare mountain range, Nyeri County about 150km north of Kenya’s capital Nairobi. Its contributing farmers grow coffee at very high altitudes of 1900 - 2100 masl.
The area surrounding Gachatha is densely populated, so every effort is made to minimize its imapct. The factory treats all water in soak pits to ensure no contaminates run into the local waterways, which are a source for drinking water. The community also places great importance on protecting the indigenous trees that remain in the area, so that the local bird life can be sustained. The main varieties of coffee grown here are SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11.
The region has deep, fertile well drained red volcanic soils which are ideal for coffee production. The Coffee is processed in the classic washed style and then graded by size at the dry mill with this lot being a AA grade, which constitutes only the large, regular uniform beans.
