An extra-more soul
Who said small Kenyan farms can’t produce single estate coffees?
This year, thanks to David Ngibuini (Muruguru, Nyeri), Belco is able to bring you coffees produced at small farms, with between 2,000 and 10,000 trees, in Nyeri County and Kiambu County. These farmers have shown a remarkable will to move away
from the major trading networks. And their desire for independence has allowed us to offer our European roasters a little something extra – more soul.
We have also continued our strong partnership with Boyce and his Chania and Oreti farms in Thika. Boyce is one of a handful
of farmers able to offer all Kenyan varieties, which is something quite unique and precious.
Like all East Africa, Kenya suffered from excessive rainfall in late 2019 and early 2020. Locusts from Ethiopia have also caused enormous damage. This will affect next year’s harvest too, in terms of both quality and yield.
