On the rich volcanic soils surrounding Mount Kenya, Gatomboya Coffee Factory collects cherries from nearly 700 smallholders for processing. The station was built in 1987 under Mathira Farmers Cooperative Society (FCS) and broke off in 1996 to join Barichu FCS.

Gatomboya offers its members access to credit for school fees, farm inputs, and emergency expenses. Its goal is to share information with farmers regarding crop husbandry and other agricultural practices important to coffee production.

Peaberries are the result of a natural mutation in which only one seed within the coffee cherry is fertilized. Instead of two coffee beans with flat faces and round backs within the cherry, a single rounded bean is the result.

Peaberries constitute a small percentage of each harvest and they are typically sorted into peaberry-only lots for consistency during the roasting process, as they are denser than regular coffee beans.
