Tart blackberry with brown sugar & mandarin sweetness.
200km from Nairobi, the Kinoro Factory (mill), run by a co-op of 800 farmers, is growing quality & opportunity for up-and-coming Meru county. Investing in productivity and efficiency improvements to their mill, the Kigari Farmer Co-op are also pursing new, direct partnerships with Vava Coffee and, in-turn, Five Senses to secure a sustainable market for their quality coffees. We particularly love the seedling nursery providing a kick-starter for youth and women to access coffee farming. The fertile lands of Mt Kenya that are farmed by the Co-op have produced a coffee full of tart blackberry, carried on brown sugar sweetness & swirls of mandarin sweetness. Enjoy!
Vava Specialty Coffee is a social enterprise in Nairobi with a subsidiary in the US, that seeks to cause positive social and economic disruption within the coffee industry and create sustainable livelihoods for smallholder farmers as well as integrate more women and youth within the entire supply chain.
