About This Coffee
The Ndia-Ini Cooperative's station was named after the nearby village, which means the deepest part of a river. This station was built in 1969 and is owned by the cooperative members who deliver their cherry there. The cooperative has a total of 1,200 registered farmers, of whom only 395 farmers consistently deliver their cherry to the station.
The farmers carefully handpick ripe, red cherry and deliver it to the Ndai-Ini Cooperative's station. Upon intake, the Cherry Clerk observes and sorts the cherry meticulously, accepting only dense and ripe cherry through visual sorting and floating. The cherry is then laid on raised beds to dry and is frequently raked to ensure even drying. It takes about 10 to 14 days for the cherry to dry.
