Gakuyuini factory is a part of the Farmers Cooperative Society called Thirikwa, this group has consistently achieved high prices for their coffees. They have been one of the factories to pay the best prices to farmers for the past five years.

The factory recycles the water they use for processing cherry and supports their member farmers by distributing manure that can be used as fertilizer.

Gakuyuini is a factory sitting on the slopes of Mount Kenya, and benefits from the fertile volcanic soil in this area, and the altitudes ranging from 1600 to 1700 meters above sea level.

The factory is only 1.5 hours from Nairobi, demonstrating just how close the typical coffee-growing areas of Kenya are to the city. The factory has almost as many female members as male: 674 female farmers and 879 male farmers.
