Gatomboya comes from a local dialect word meaning swamp, referring to the damp area around the Kirigu river, that runs by the washing station. This is the name given to this coffee factory, one of four owned by the Barichu Farmers Cooperative Society. The factory was initially built in 1987 under a different society, but became part of Barichu in 1996.
Apart from its outstanding flavour complexity, one of the reasons why people like buying coffees from Gatomboya is the strong management of the cooperative society behind the mill. Barichu is known for taking good care of its member producers and the nearby community - something we consider with every coffee purchase.
