KENYA | Kirinyaga Baragwi Coop

Like classic Kenyan coffee, it has a flavor reminiscent of blackcurrant and grapefruit, a slight blueberry aroma, and a citrus taste reminiscent of blood orange.

The extremely sweet taste is reminiscent of the rich sweetness of black sugar syrup.
The aftertaste has a floral impression similar to black tea, and you can enjoy the thick body and satisfying taste. It's exotic, juicy, and full of energy that will give you a boost of energy after drinking it! Please give it a try.

Kenya is home to many volcanoes and has an ideal environment for growing coffee, including nutrient-rich red volcanic ash soil, altitude, and climate.
Famous production areas include Nyeri and Embu districts at the foot of Mt Kenya. Among them, the coffee we will deliver this time was produced in the Kirinyaga area.

There are only a limited number of coffee varieties grown in Kenya, the majority of which are SL28, SL34, Ruiru11, and Batian. ) means. Kenya's coffee production is based on a well-organized auction-based system, with 90% of coffee sold through auctions at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange.

While this system allows quality to be fairly evaluated, there is no room for producers to negotiate prices, and due to the structure, payments to producers are made several months after the sale is completed, making it difficult for producers to make a living. This problem is the fundamental problem behind the soaring price of coffee in Kenya and the decline in production.

A new generation is now taking action to overcome this structural weakness. Peter, a curator who represents a new era, is responsible for the future of coffee in Kenya. Peter founded ``Rockbern'' in 2012, following the lessons of his grandfather, a coffee grower. He is about to become a revolutionary game changer in the market. The revolution he speaks of is about connecting roasters and producers and building win-win relationships. Please come and try the coffee made by Peter and the other producers with such passion.
