We’ve been fortunate to have had a wonderful relationship with producer-owned cooperative exporter KCCE for a number of years. KCCE, an acronym for Kenya Cooperative Coffee Exporters, was established in 2009 with the purpose of connecting Kenyan farmers with international buyers. A year or two after they were established we had the pleasure of cupping their coffees for the first time--and have been regularly featuring coffees they represent ever since.
Over the years we’ve been lucky to have been able to develop direct relationships through KCCE with a few producers of our favorite lots--and that’s exactly what we have here. The peaberry outturn from the Ichuga Wet Mill in Nyeri County. Ichuga consists of 726 farmers on 549 acres of land and is part of the Kiama Farmers’ Cooperative Society--a local farmers’ cooperative that operates two additional wet mills in the area. We’ve cupped dozens upon dozens of KCCE’s coffees over the years, and the Ichuga PB is consistently a cupping-room favorite.
