Coffee Growers & Coffee Bean Profiles
We search worldwide to find the highest quality and highest value coffee beans to offer our customers. But that’s not the only criteria we consider. We believe it is also important to align ourselves with growers whose practices favor the environment and provide optimum working conditions and benefits for employees.
Our coffee bean and grower articles also include our notes on taste profiles and roasting tips.
You can peruse our Coffee Bean & Grower articles here or if you’ve heard of particular coffee and want to know more about it and its growers use our search function to find relevant articles.

Kenya Kirinyaga Baragwi Gachami is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Gachami Factory (wet mill) located in Kirinyaga County, Kenya, a growing region in the fertile foothills of Mount Kenya.
Farmer plots are so small that size is gauged by the number of trees rather than the measurements of the land. Farmers who process their coffee at the Gachami Factory are members of the Baragwi Farming Cooperative Society, which was established in 1953 and currently has 16,892 members. Baragwi supports a women’s group called the Mount Kenya Project, which was implemented to improve the quality of life through socio-economic projects aimed at reducing poverty and increasing business knowledge in rural communities.
