Quality and traceability
The coffee plantations are located in the Nyeri region, at an altitude of 1880 to 1970 m. 1000 small coffee farmers are active here, gathered in the Thiriku Coffee Cooperative. Processing is done centrally at the cooperative where the quality and traceability of the coffee is closely monitored.
For exports, Thiriku proudly partners with Trabocca, which is committed to strong relationships with local people.
Best-paid coffee farmers in Kenya
At $1 per kilo
Thiriku members are the highest paid coffee farmers in Kenya at $1 per kilo of coffee berries, they are also constantly challenged to improve quality and yield per coffee plant. They are assisted and supported by an agronomist from the cooperative.
