Karatu is one of three wet mills, called factories in Kenya, which form part of the Gitwe Cooperative Society of Farmers, Ltd.. Farmers, with an average of 150 coffee trees each, bring their coffee cherries to this mill. Karatu is a mere 22 miles from Kenya's capital, Nairobi, on the east-facing side of the AberdareMountains. Coffee fields grow alongside tea fields at elevations over 6,000 feet. These farmers practice multi-cropping - macadamia, avocado, beans, bananas, peas, sweet potatoes as well as tea. Karatu has been producing very high quality coffees in the last few years.
