THE STORY

Kanyoni Coffee Factory is operated by the New Gatukuyu Farmers Cooperative Society, which has 3,729 smallholder members delivering to 16 factories in the area. The average farmer owns between 1/5th and 1/3rd a hectare and grows coffee alongside other crops such as banana, corn, and sweet potato.

Coffees in Kenya are typically traceable to the factory level, where smallholder farmers deliver cherry for sale and processing. Producers deliver their cherry and receive payment based on weight at the market level for the day. After the coffee is received by the F.C.S., it is sorted and processed into lots that are built by quantity, so it is nearly impossible to know which farmers' coffees end up in which particular lot.Because of the very small average farm size, there is typically not a way to keep more-detailed records at the factory level, without adding miles of paperwork and delay. This is one of the reasons it is difficult to find highly traceable coffees from Kenya.
