Riakiberu Factory is located in Muranga District in Kenya's Central Province. The wet mill is very old, built up in the late 1950's for members in the surrounding villages. Like most factories, the wet mill site is where farmers deliver whole coffee cherry to be processed through the wet mill, then dried before moving to dry milling facilities where the coffee is prepared for export. Riakiberu sits at roughly 1750 meters above sea level (some farmers at much higher elevations), and situated near the Ndurumo River from which they are able to channel fresh water to be used for wet processing, which is then re-circulated without being put back into the river. Riakiberu is part of the Kamacharia Farmers Cooperative Society who currently serves over 1500 farmer members. This is the peaberry selection, the small, round shaped beans that they separate by running through a series of vibrating screens. Some say that peaberries are sweeter, due to higher density.
