It is important to note that the founders of Growers Alliance, Martin Kabaki and Purity Gikunju grew up on coffee farms in Kenya before moving to live in the US.
Most coffee companies use Kenyan coffee as blend to help improve the taste profile of poorer quality coffees. With Growers Alliance, we detest that idea and we want you to taste the true taste of Kenya. The coffee industry of Kenya is famous for its cooperative system of production, processing, milling, marketing, and auctioning coffee. About 70% of Kenyan coffee is produced by small scale holders.
It is estimated that six-million Kenyans are employed directly or indirectly in the coffee industry. The major coffee growing regions in Kenya are the highlands around Mt. Kenya, the Aberdare Range, Kisii, Nyanza, Bungoma, Nakuru and Kericho. The tropical climate, the highlands of Mount Kenya, plus the rich and fertile volcanic soil provide excellent conditions for growing what is arguably the best coffee in the world. Coffee from Kenya is of the mild arabica type and is well known for its intense flavor, full body, and pleasant aroma.
This is an award winning coffee that is both fairly traded & chemical/pesticide free which means that the coffee guarantees farmers a fair price, fair labor conditions, and environmentally sustainable farming that protect farmer's health and preserve our valuable ecosystems. This is premium specialty coffee of gourmet quality that comes from 100% Arabica bean. It is grown in the shade and on high altitudes.
