The co-op has three wet mills, Gondo, Kirimahiga and Kayu, all of which are located about 200kilometres North of Nairobi. The co-op was registered in 1998 though coffee farming has been there since the 1960s.

Timely and selective hand picking is carried out in Kirimahiga wet mill of New Kiriti FCS. Cherry is delivered to the wet mill the same day it is picked. Cherry sorting is carried out at the wet mill prior to the pulping. Red ripe cherries are separated from underipes, overipes and foreign matter. The red ripe cherries are processed through the wet processing method that utilises clean water from Gondo River. The processing water is recirculated before disposal into evaporation and seepage pits. Sun drying is done after careful fermentation and washing before delivery of the parchment coffee to the dry mill for secondary processing.
