Mutitu factory (wet mill) is a member of Rugi Farmers Cooperative Society. It was started in 1957 and is one of the oldest factories in Kenya. Around 750 smallholder farmers are actively delivering their cherry to Mutitu factory. The factory is located near the town of Mukurweini in Nyeri county, on the eastern slopes of the Aberdares mountain range.
In 2018/19 season Mutitu processed around 350,000kg of cherry. After weighing the cherry to keep a record of each farmer’s delivery, coffee is pulped using a disc pulper to remove the skin and pulp, before the coffee undergoes a dry fermentation. After 12-24 hours, depending on the ambient temperature, the coffee is passed through washing channels to ensure all the fruit is completely removed from the parchment skin, and that coffee is separated by density. Then, the coffee is submerged in clean water for up to 36 hours with a water change every 5-12 hours before it is finally dried on raised beds.
