Kenya…producer of one of the world’s top 5 best coffees
Kenyan coffee’s taste profile is complex and can possess interesting fruity flavors, notes of berry and citrus, some almost winey. Compared to Ethiopian coffee, Kenyan coffee is said to be much brighter, and higher in acidity. All Kenya coffee grown is Arabica coffee grown on the rich volcanic soil that is found in the highlands of the country. The acidic soil offers just the right amount of sunlight and rainfall provide excellent conditions for growing coffee plants. Coffee from Kenya is of the ‘Colombia mild’ type, and is well known for its intense flavor, full body, and pleasant aroma with notes of cocoa and high grade coffee from Kenya is one of the most sought-after coffees in the world.

As of 2020, Kenya had the third largest economy in Sub-Saharan Africa, coming behind Nigeria and South Africa.
The major coffee-growing regions in Kenya are the high plateaus around Mount Kenya, the Aberdare Range, Kisii, Nyanza, Bungoma, Nakuru, Kericho and to a smaller scale in Machakos and Taita hills in Eastern and coast provinces, respectively. Today around 250,000 Kenyans are employed in the production of coffee. The majority of the country’s coffee (around 55 percent) is produced by upwards of 600,000 smallholders, organised into several hundred cooperatives. The rest of the country’s production is by medium and large estates, many of which run their own wet- and sometimes also dry-mills.
