Thiriku has one factory which processes coffee from rich red volcanic soil. The area receives an average of 1100mm of rain as it is between Mt Kenya to the North East and Aberdare ridges to the west. The cooperative is managed by a democratically elected board of 9 members, each of whom serves as a representative of a community where the cooperative has members. Additionally, the Cooperative provides employment for permanent members of staff, headed by the Secretary Manager, who oversees the day-to-day running of the Coop under the board’s supervision. The cooperative owns a single wet mill which serves six communities and 2,500 smallholder farmers from the surrounding area. Sitting at nearly 1,900 meters, the wet mill is one of the region’s highest and in many ways benefits greatly from the cool temperatures that characterize this high altitude. Not only do cherries in the surrounding area ripen slowly, the low temperatures contribute to longer fermentation and slower drying times, which when well managed can lead to a better cup.
