Gatuya Coffee Factory is located in a valley between two hills, near Kahuro town, in the Muranga District of the Central Province. It was established in 1962 and is currently affiliated with the New Murarandia Farmers Coop Society. The region is unusual in having a biennial production cycle: the main harvest takes place from October to December, and a smaller harvest from March to May. In most of the world (aside from Colombia’s diverse microclimates) a single annual harvest is typical. Farmers in this region deliver their cherry to the factory (also known as a wetmill) where it is depulped, dry-fermented, washed and soaked using water pumped from the River Muriuriu to the reservoir tanks. Parchment is then dried on raised tables during which time it is frequently turned and constantly sorted by hand to remove any defects.
