Mercy Murathe is the wife of the late William Murathe, she is now the caretaker of the Ibutiti Farm. William Murathe was the head of the Ibutiti Farm for almost 50 years. He was not only a coffee grower, but also a successful businessman. In his early days, William built up a wine and spirits import and distribution business and later entered politics, even representing his representation in Parliament. William may have been very entrepreneurial but he was extremely committed to his coffee. He built the small Washed station that was constructed in the years 1980s and the family home on the Ibutiti Farm shortly thereafter. The washing station is meticulously clean and has a complete and small warehouse where all the parchment can be stored and conditioned. Very sadly, we recently learned that he passed away in 2017, at the age of 86, and the Farm and benefit are now run by his wife Maercy and son David, who for many years had helped his father tend to all the jobs.
