Named for the village near where Ndia-Ini Cooperative was formed, the name means the deepest part of a river. The station is owned by cooperative members who deliver their cherry there. The station was built in 1969. The cooperative has 1,200 registered farmers, of whom about 395 farmers consistently deliver cherry to the station.
Kenyan coffees are graded by size. AA grade coffees are the largest and historically the most highly valued.
