WOMEN OWNED KABNGETUNY COOP - Rift Valley, Kenya
tastes like hibiscus limeade & cacao nibs
The women of the Kabngetuny Coffee Cooperative are doing amazing things. An initiative started in 2015 that enabled women to own their own coffee plants and become full fledged members of the cooperative and have access to training. Women have always been a part of Kenya's coffee history, whether they worked 12 hour days for their fathers or their husbands, but it wasn't until recently that they could work for themselves and THEY ARE THRIVING! Their coffee is blowing away expectations and is the highest quality coffee from the cooperative.
This is our 3rd year purchasing coffee from this project and one of our best selling coffees. The flavor profile is unlike the citric acidity found in coffee near Mt. Kenya because it is grown in a very different microclimate in the Rift Valley, aka the cradle of humankind. Instead you will find big plum and fig vibes with lots of chocolate, a very sweet and delicious coffee.
Here is a fantastic article written about the amazing work of the women of the Kabngetuny Cooperative.
