From Clifton Coffee Roasters:

In the Swahili language, Ndaroini is a place where people can rest overnight. Historically, 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. By the year 1981, the farmers were very frustrated with traveling very long distances to deliver their cherries to the neighbouring washing station. They proposed to build a new washing station that was closer to home. In 1984, due to the persistence of the Ndaroini farmers, the government allocated a community land measuring 2.5 acres and granted them the right to build a new station.

Together with Ndaroini Coffee Ltd. Trabocca started a new movement that seeks to award the hardest working people in the industry: the smallholders. Instead of paying 55 to 82 Kenyan shilling per kilo cherries – as reported by the Daily Nation as an industry standard, they pay Ksh 100 per kg cherries and an additional 21 to the factory for quality improvements. The payment was made in February 2019, giving smallholders the opportunity to invest in their plots before the harvest that started again in October.
