After visiting the Ndumberi cooperative during the harvest in November 2010 we were utterly impressed by their visions and facilities. Their focus on quality in all aspects of the coffee production was not only something they preached but also practiced. This is the first cooperative we have visited that have their own cupping lab installed at the Ndumberi factory (wet mill) where they execute quality control of all the coffees being processed at their 3 factories. Therefore they have a much better opportunity to understand what they are doing right and wrong during the processing of the coffees they produce. Most other cooperatives rely on feedback from exporters or customers and to be honest that is rarely done systematically.
