The familiar intoxicating traits of Kenya are on full display while also being altogether new. Extreme altitudes lend intensity, acidity and structure, but warming breezes from Lake Victoria allow even ripening of concentrated fruit. Dark florals reminiscent of violet, lavender, and cocktail bitters set these coffees apart in Kenya when clothed in soft and full textures for a profile at once beguiling and approachable.
An exploratory journey took us away from familiar Nyeri into the western Rift Valley, known more for its tea production. Kericho County was once thought too cold to produce commercial coffee, but a history of unrest among the diverse tribal groups in the area has also kept specialty coffee pioneers away preferring the more convenient and accessible regions of Mount Kenya near Nariobi. We discovered humble driven producers ready to bring Kericho to the world market believing specialty coffee can provide a more meaningful and connected future than the diminishing returns of commercial tea. We are beyond thrilled to invite you on the journey of discovering and developing relationships and world class coffee in the Rift Valley of Kenya.
