"In Swahili language, Ndaroini is a place where people can rest overnight. This name applied to the Ndaroini smallholders that traveled long distances to deliver their cherries to the neighboring washing station Gichathaini. After a day’s work, they returned to the colonial camps – just a stone’s throw from today’s Ndaroini factory. Now with the help of our import partners, Trabocca, and Ndaroini Coffee Ltd. instead of paying 55 to 82 Kenyan shilling per kilo cherries – as reported by the Daily Nation as an industry standard, they are paid 100 Ksh per kg of cherries and an additional 21 to the factory for quality improvements. The first payment was made in February 2019, giving smallholders the opportunity to invest in their plots before the harvest started again in October.
