Kenya has two coffee marketing systems in Kenya; The Auction System and Direct Sale also known as Second Window.


The Direct Sale, commonly referred to as “Second Window” requires that a buyer identifies a producer/farmer and directly negotiates with the producer/farmer via a licensed agent where they come up with a duly signed and bidding sales contract, which is registered with the Coffee Directorate. 

The Directorate ratifies the contract after carrying out an inspection and analyzing the coffee for quality and value as per the contract.

If you are an importer or a roaster interested in building direct relationships with our producers/farmers, please contact us and we will guide you through this whole process.
