Mihutu Factory was established in 1960 and is operated by the Rugi Farmer Cooperative Society, which has a total of 4,590 active members utilizing eight central processing facilities. The total hectares of land these farmers represent is only 579 hectares, which goes to show how small the average plot is. The coffee is delivered in cherry form to the factory and depulped the day it's received. It's fermented overnight and then moved through water channels to be cleaned, soaked, and sorted by density. It is dried on raised beds for between 7–15 days, during which time it's constantly hand-rotated in order to maintain even dryness. 

 

This cooperative society sets aside funds every harvest to be used as pre-financing for the producers, a credit system that is utilized through their marketing agent, Coffee Management Services (CMS). CMS also provides training and good practice seminars to members of the cooperative society. 

 

This coffee is a classic example of coffee from Nyeri - deep, full of complex acidity and sweet notes of raspberry and blackcurrant.
