Ndundu Coffee Factory is located in a traditional tea growing area in the Thika District, near Gatundu town, in Kenya’s Central Province, at an altitude of 1898m. It was established in 1980 and rests on 5 acres of land serving the Gachika, Ndundu and Waiganjo villages.

After harvesting all the coffee is delivered to the factory and undergoes wet processing. Water is pumped from River Theta to the reservoir tanks for pulping and recirculation. After pulping the coffee is stored overnight, washed, soaked and spread on raised drying tables. The parchment is turned frequently on the drying tables, before being sorted and stored prior to delivery to the dry mill operated by KPCU.

Ndundu is affiliated to the Thiririka Farmers Co-operative Society, whose membership currently stands at 500, of which 350 are active farmers. The affiliate members of the co-op carry out all agronomic activities associated with coffee production, sourcing coffee seeds from the Coffee Research Station, planting and cultivating according to the guidelines offered by the group.
