About This Coffee
This coffee comes from the Karani Factory which is operated by Kabare Cooperative Society and serves the more than 600 smallholder farmers who deliver cherry to the station.
Smallholder farmers cultivate coffee in the region’s rich volcanic and sandy soil. The area is well irrigated and verdant. Most farms are extremely small, about 20 trees on average.
Kenyan coffees are classified by size. This coffee is AA grade. AA beans are the largest size. AA grade coffees are those that are 17/18.5 screen size, meaning that they are larger than 7.2 millimeters.
Kenyan coffee has been recognized for its high-quality, meticulous preparation and exquisite flavors. Today, more than 600,000 smallholders farming fewer than 5 acres compose 99% of the coffee farming population of Kenya. Their farms cover more than 75% of total coffee growing land and produce nearly 70% of the country’s coffee. These farmers are organized into hundreds of Farmer Cooperative Societies (FCS), all of which operate at least one factory.
