JBC Coffee Roasters - Kenya Kariaini - 12 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

This coffee comes from smallholder farmers contributing to the Kariaini Factory in Kirinyaga County, Kenya. The Kariaini Factory is part of the Mwirua Farmers Cooperative Society which borders Mt. Kenya National Park. Kenya’s coffee is dominated by a cooperative system of coffee production, where members vote on representation, marketing, and milling, as well as profit allocation. Smallholder farmer members grow coffee in volcanic loam soil (coffee loves this!) in the famed Kirinyaga region which is known for producing some of Kenya’s best coffees. The Kariaini Factory ferments coffee for 18-48 hours depending on ambient conditions. After fermentation, coffee is washed and then dried on raised beds.

Unparalleled quality, a human story, and sustainability – that’s our coffee philosophy.

Unparalleled quality. We won’t buy a coffee unless we know that it will inspire you.

A human story. Often times a producer’s story gets lost in the coffee supply chain. It’s our focus to provide a seed-to-cup experience, honoring everyone involved.

Sustainability. We purchase coffees directly from producers and through brokers who share our goal of making coffee a sustainable commodity. Financially and environmentally, the coffees we purchase seek balance. Premiums paid for quality far exceed fair trade premiums and afford a more sustainable, honest model.

Combine our coffee philosophy and passion for exceptional coffees with our down-home Midwest hospitality and that, in a nutshell, is JBC Coffee Roasters. We can’t wait to share our coffee passion with you.
