Raving about Kenya Coffee, Home of the finest beans
Coffee beans are carefully cultivated and handpicked on family farms, sorted to retain the best beans, processed and dried in the heat of the sun.

The Main coffee grown in Kenya is Arabica, which varies in flavor varying depending on the region where it’s cultivated. The Mount Kenya region, stretching from the foothills’ of Mount Kenya and the Aberdares to the outskirts of Nairobi contains a pristine indigenous forest with unique micro-climate that is teeming with wildlife. The coffee produced here is rich in acidity and full bodied with a sensual aroma and hints of citric fruit – characteristics that make it one of the world’s best.
The landscape of the North east of Nairobi or central highlands namely Nyeri County consists of gently rounded ridges that slope into valleys with permanent swift-flowing streams. The deep volcanic soils are well drained and complemented by the sloping topography. Production is confined to high altitudes, at 1,400 to 2,100 meters above sea level where the soil is volcanic. The succulent berries originating here yield the finest specialty coffee.
For years Kenya has exported coffee as a commodity that is processed to an end product and used for blending coffees from other regions. Today Kenya coffee is branded to give it identity and retain differentiation. Coffee lovers who enjoy fine, rich coffee will be captivates by the taste while holidaying Kenya and will probably want to buy some coffee beans or ground coffee to take home.
