The Baragwi FCS is today the largest cooperative in Kenya both in volume and number of members. At the Guama factory, one of their 12 factories, the cherries are sorted before being pulped. The parchment is then fermented overnight, before being washed and graded into P1, P2, P3, P lights, and pods. After that, the coffee is dried on the drying tables for 8-14 days. The Chairman of this society has implemented various processes throughout all the factories of the Baragwi FCS. He installed tiles on all the washing channels and fermentation tanks which helps to maintain a clean environment to avoid off flavors. The water from the processing is being reused as well.
