The Farm Story

The cooperative comprises small farms with around 100 trees each, contributing to the surprising excellence of the region's coffees, despite its lesser-known status compared to Nyeri. During the November harvest, farmers deliver freshly picked cherries to the factory, manually sorting for quality, and are paid based on the superior grade. In the face of challenges like coffee berry disease and climate changes affecting traditional varietals, Kamwangi, managed by Edwin Gichori, strives to maintain the renowned Kenyan coffee quality. The cooperative emphasizes sustainability, with Kamwangi providing an advance payment to farmers and returning 80% of the sales price after deducting milling and marketing costs. Rainforest Alliance certified since 1997, Kamwangi excels in tracking payments, employs wastewater treatment, and implements stringent quality control, showcasing a commitment to both exceptional coffee and responsible practices.
