The processing sites where cooperative members take their coffee to be processed and prepared for export are called factories. Githiru is the name of the factory and the wet mill. It was constructed in 1982 and currently serves a purpose to the coffee growers from the region. The coffee they produce is Washed processed, where the fully ripe cherries are pulped, fermented and washed to finally be dried slowly over 2-3 weeks until the moisture content reduces to 10-12%.
