Next up in our Vava Coffee series is Chepsangor Hills Coffee Estate. A shining example of the diverse flavour profile coffee regions further afield, beyond the central parts of Kenya offers. Chepsangor is located at the foot of the picturesque Nandi Hills and does a great job breaking the "typical Kenyan" mould we've come to expect. A passion project started by Rosebella Langat, Chepsangor Hills has a singular focus: The economic empowerment of local women coffee producers. Known for quality, innovation and sustainability, Chepsangor also supports families in diversifying their income by growing food. Thanks to the region's rich volcanic soils, abundant rain, rivers and waterfalls combined with the warm winds that sweep across the valley from Lake Victoria, allowing for even ripening of the cherry - Rosebellas's vision with Chepsangor opens the door to a completely different, wildly delicious Kenyan favour profile to explore!
