The Baragwi FCS is the biggest farmer society in Kenya, the society was registered in October 1953 to promote the social and economic interests of its members. The farmers are supported by farm management services to increase productivity and quality.

Cherries are hand sorted for unripe and over ripe by the farmers before they go into production. Deliveries from different farmers are processed together on the delivery day.The coffee is fermented for 16-24 hours under closed shade. After fermentation the coffees are washed and again graded by density in wash​ing channels and are then soaked under clean water from the Gatomboya stream for 16-18 hours.

The coffee is then sun dried for 8 – 14 days on African drying beds.

The Chairman of this society has implemented various processes throughout all the factories of the Baragwi FCS. One of them is to install tiles on all the washing channels and fermentation tanks. Moreover, the water for the processing is being reused.
