Background Details

Kenya Kirinyaga Baragwi Nyanja AA 30kg Ecotact is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Nyanja Factory (wet mill) located in Kirinyaga County, Kenya, a growing region in the fertile foothills of Mount Kenya. Farmer plots are so small that measurements are based on the numbers of trees, not area of land. Farmers who process their coffee at the Nyanja Factory are members of the Baragwi Farming Cooperative Society, which was established in 1953 and has 16,892 members. Baragwi supports a women’s group called the Mount Kenya Project, which was implemented to improve quality of life through socio-economic projects aimed at reducing poverty and increasing business knowledge in rural communities.
