About:Githembe Washing Station is part of the Thiririka Farmers Co-operative Society. Composed of just 4 washing stations and 2,400 members, they're able to focus on quality and traceability. Of those 2,400 members, 1,500 deliver cherry specifically to Githembe for processing. It was after the Thiririka river, which is the main body of water in the region. All farmers predominantly tend traditional varietals of SL28 and SL34, but as with any co-operative lot, there is always a percentage of Ruiru 11, a disease resistant varietal that still has high cup scores.
