 Gatagua Factory is run by Gatagua Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS). Over 650 members deliver cherry to the station. Members of Gatagua FCS cultivate coffee at 1,600 to 1,800 meters above sea level and  Gatagua Factory takes every action to preserve the exceptional quality of the cherry delivered by their members.

With help from Sucafina/Kahawa Bora, Gatagua provides training to farmers in improved pruning, cultivation and harvesting methods. Kahawa Bora’s field staff have also performed soil analysis on member’s plots to inform correct input application, which helps improve yields and quality while reducing cost and environmental impact. This focus on high quality at all stages of cultivation and processing has increased cup scores from 85 to 87-88+ in a short period of time.
