Kieni, a dry mill built up by a cooperative of 1,000 small farmers and managed by Josphat Kariuki. This is mill we have worked with since 2010.
It is undoubtedly one of the best coffees we have tasted in Kenya. It gives a unique acidity and intense fruity aroma to our menu.
We work by the values of transparent trade. This helps create a healthy relationship with the cooperative and financial sustainability for them.
We pay a quality bonus to Kieni that is 419% above market price ($6.50/lb FOB). The quality bonus allows the farmer to continue to produce higher quality coffee.
