What is so special about this coffee?

Kenyan coffees stand out for their distinctive flavour profile marked by vibrant acidity, full body, and unique notes like blackberries, black currants, and wine-like undertones. Mount Kenya's high altitude makes the coffee beans denser and richer; their meticulous "washed" processing method, combined with the country's volcanic red soils, gives the coffee clear and varied flavours.

The strict Kenyan grading system ensures that only the best beans reach consumers, with AA being the top grade, often connecting with quality. Unique coffee varieties like SL-28 and SL-34 and the cooperative system of smallholder farmers further enhance the consistent quality of Kenyan coffee. In short, every cup of Kenyan coffee serves a deep-rooted tradition, skill, and a relentless commitment to excellence.

Cooperative Roots, Global Reach

In the heart of Kenya, coffee is more than just a crop; it's a communal effort. Hundreds of cooperatives bring together over 600,000 smallholder farmers, each contributing their unique touch to the beans. These cooperatives ensure top-quality coffee and strengthen ties in the local community.

These farmers, many of whom work on plots of less than five acres, are the backbone of Kenya's coffee industry. They share knowledge, resources, and a commitment to sustainable practices. Together, they're not just growing coffee; they're cultivating a stronger, united community.
