In strict consultations with roasters and importers, we source the desired coffee beans either from large coffee estates, cooperatives or from the famous Nairobi Coffee Exchange.
When and if the need arises, we are able to source coffee (both Arabica and Robusta) from other East Africa countries including Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi all of which are within our reach and access.
