About This Coffee
This coffee comes from Faith Estates which is owned and operated by Cecilia Wanjiku Haniel.
Cecilia knew she wanted to be a coffee farmer from an early age. Growing up, she used to admire her neighbors who grew coffee. She saw the benefits of coffee production and grew up with a desire to become a coffee farmer herself. That journey began in 1972 when she took over Faith Estates.
She founded a group of more than 30 small estate owners in Kirinyaga who meet monthly for trainings, business planning and to share coffee growing and processing knowledge. The business idea is simple and perfect. Those who can commit to quality practices are processing their cherry together, and they market this coffee as Faith Estates.
Cecilia believes in empowering not just coffee farmers, but her community. She has contributed to sponsoring education for children in her village and she strives to empower young people to become leaders in their communities.
In the future, Cecilia aims to expand Faith Estates’ reach in the supply chain and begin roasting and preparing their coffees for sale in supermarkets and other local stores.
