Within Nyeri County, along the slopes of Mt. Kenya is the Karatina Factory, or wet mill. 1,450 smallholders in this region contribute coffee cherries to this mill and belong to the Barichu Cooperative Society. Situated at 1,650 meters above sea level, this region is defined by its bright red soils, full of rich nutrients for coffee trees. The high altitude allows for ideal temperatures and rainfall for the slow maturation of coffee cherries. Smallholders in this region grow coffee on small plots of land and pick the cherries during harvest to deliver to the mill.
