After serving the tasty, easy going Grade C “Kikai” last year, we’re proud to be able to showcase this stunning AA lot produced by Kutere Factory from the same region. Continuing to work with the social enterprise Vava Coffee has been a priority for us and we are impressed by the work they are doing amongst different communities in Kenya. 

“We are a Certified B-Corporation made up of  a group of passionate individuals and farmers working towards one goal: using coffee to empower communities. In 2009,  this journey began with Vava Angwenyi who set up a social enterprise whose main aim is to contribute to better future prospects for local communities and the coffee industry as a whole. The company ensures sustainable livelihoods for the people and communities in which it works. Rather than give handouts, Vava Coffee gives hope for a better tomorrow to those it works with as well as their families by giving them a chance to earn a living and get out of poverty by engaging them in work activities they are skilled in performing.() Vava Coffee’s vision is to challenge the status quo and promote positive social disruption within the Coffee industry. This vision comes from an inborn Kenyan passion for coffee and a drive to promote the sustainable production of coffee within Kenya’s and the wider East African region by tracing the production of high quality coffee beans to the independent small holder coffee farmer, who works day in and day out, against major obstacles and with meager resources to produce some of the world’s best tasting coffees, often without an understanding or appreciation of the final fruits of their labor.” (https://www.vavacoffeeinc.com/)

This particular coffee was grown at an altitude of 1700m - 1850m. The farmers selectively hand pick red ripe cherries that are delivered for wet milling the same day. The parchment is then fermented, washed and sun dried.

Flavour wise this coffee is wonderfully rich, notes of dried fruits are coupled with a pleasant earthiness. The acidity is well integrated, overall a stunning and more-ish coffee. We predict that as our first Kenyan release of the season, this will fly off the shelves, so better grab yours soon.
