RIPE BLACKBERRY | HONEY | LOW ACIDITY
The Musilili Coffee Farmer Co-operative in the Nairobi growing district of Kenya is a group of pro-active farmers who know good coffee. They are partially responsible for the recent overhaul in Kenya that allows buyers transparency in knowing who grew the coffee, and providing financial motivation to farmers to produce better coffees because they now get paid higher prices when their particular coffees sell for higher prices at the government auction.
In addition to questioning the laws on coffee transactions in Kenya, the Musilili co-op is active in promoting fair labour standards, organic farming, and high quality.
