The Karii factory was built in 1984, located about 70 miles from Nairobi and a mile and a half from Kerugoya town. The Rundu river provides water for the processing: Ripe cherry is brought by the farmer members, depulped on an Aagard disc pulper, and dried to just below 12% moisture. It is dry milled at a facility near Karatina town, at Central Kenya Coffee MIlls.
