  • The Full Story

    RUARAI is a Kikuyu name meaning “a place of rocks” due to the rocks in the river that flows alongside the factory. Within the vicinity of the factory, there is the famous Gakindu open-air market, which deals with farm produce and livestock.

    Ruarai Factory (washing station) is part of the Ruthaka Farmers Co-operative Society. Ruarai collects cherries from about 600 smallholders with an average of 0.4 hectares of coffee arable land.

    Their total production is about 280 tons of cherries per year. Fermentation is done with fresh river water from Ruarai river. The Ruthaka Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) is located in Nyeri in Central Kenya. Nyeri is located on the slopes of Mount Kenya. Together with the neighbouring region Kirinyaga, it is known for its intense, complex, and flavour-dense coffees. The FCS is made up of mainly smallholder farms, each with some 100 trees. They are organised in Cooperative Societies that act as umbrella organisations for the factories where the small­holders deliver their coffee cherries for processing.
