We are always overjoyed when a Kenyan coffee lands in our warehouse – it’s an origin with such an interesting history with coffee. Bordering on to the ‘birthplace of coffee’, Ethiopia (next month’s Specialty Estate), it’s strange to think Kenya was one of the last places to plant coffee. Coffee beans made their way around the world before they finally landed back on the African continent, on Kenyan soil.
The British colonial rule throughout Kenya provided easy access to an insatiable coffee market through Europe, fast making Kenya a coffee producing beast. This demand partnered with a sound auction-based market provided the right ingredients for Kenya’s coffee trade to become a significant and perpetual part of the country’s GDP.
The Kiru Farmers Co-Op Society has spent the past few years improving all the infrastructure used in coffee processing and this has resulted in the incredibly clean and transparent flavours that can be seen in this delicious coffee.
