Kenya | Thiriku Co-op AA

Regular price $23.70
Thiriku Coffee Cooperative has a membership of over 1,000 farmers located in Tetu constituency, Nyeri County, Kenya. The coffees grown at 1880 - 1970 masl offer a high-quality cup with notes of currant and berries. Our importer partner, Trabocca, has established a strong partnership with the farmers of Thiriku Coffee Cooperative to ensure their success.

The coffee industry in Kenya has been swamped by poor payment, corruption by management officials in the cooperatives, and decreasing productivity. Trabocca's commitment to Thiriku Cooperative means they buy coffee directly from the farmers (removing middlemen and risk), pay above average prices, offer interest-free loans, and have hired an agronomist to increase crop quality and quantity, all of which support the development of the local community. Farmers are expected to double production within the next three years.
We're tasting black currant, blackberry and strawberry.
