    Full Story  (from P&S):  

    Daniel Kingori, whom I knew so well from his time at Rukira, is continuing to capably manage at Mahiga. Daniel takes care to ensure that only red cherry is submitted to the mill and that wet parchment is properly sorted to remove the beans with a green hue. Additionally, he visits farmers in the nearby area provide advice and feedback to farmers on the conditions of their soil and how to manage their farms. This AA lot sings on the cupping table! 

    On a positive note, the 2020/21 yields were much better than a challenging 2019/20 season. That being said, the Covid pandemic is still having an effect. Vaccination rates are still very low in Africa, with poor access to vaccines a major obstacle for many. For this and other reasons I do not foresee returning to visit Kenya, or anywhere in Africa, for at least another year.

    Thank you for your interest in this coffee. With your help (buying it), we can collectively contribute to an improved and evolving coffee sector in Kenya!

    As with all our coffee, this green coffee was frozen immediately on arrival in Calgary, to preserve freshness.
