The Kichawir Farmers’ Cooperative is composed of 430 active members in the southwest region of Kenya, Kericho County. A large portion of the cooperative’s members are women and youth. This is largely due to the programs the cooperative has to help ensure sustained production among these groups.

This fully washed coffee is hand sorted at delivery to ensure the highest quality. The selected cherries are then pulped, fermented and cleaned in fresh river water. They are then and sorted again and dried on raised beds for 3-5 weeks. Finally, the parchment undergoes a final grading process when they reach optimum moisture content before milling.
