Oozing the typical dense, juice-bomb complexity many of us so adore in central Kenyan coffees, we're thrilled to welcome Chorongi to the shop. A classic Nyeri coffee on all fronts, the Chorongi Factory is part of the Mutheka Farmer Cooperative Society. With about 1000 of its smallholder members delivering to the factory - with the support of the agribusiness service provider Coffee Management Services - Chorongi's long-term goal is to increase coffee production and quality through farmer training and input access. Offering pre-financing, the farmers receive advances for school fees and farm inputs; the goal is to establish a transparent relationship with the farmers and build on quality to access better markets and grow earnings to support sustainable industry growth in Kenya. A great example of the Nyeri flavour profile, Chorongi brims with delight!
