The coffee story

Kangocho is a Kikuyu word meaning “a place with corners” because of the major corners and beds of the ways from the lower to the higher point of the hill that the residence used and named it the hill of corners. Tourist attraction is in Karatina Town due to the largest open air Market in East and Central Africa, curio shops and Hotels to cater for visitors. The peaks of the famous Mt. Kenya are clearly visible, at this point when the weather is clear.
The region is favored with good climatic conditions and soils that favor cultivation of coffee.

The process

Once the ripe cherries have been pulped, fermentation follows for 12 hours, thereafter drying on raised beds for approximately 14 days. The management of the factory has been implementing processes such as reusing of water towards some of the sustainability practices they are trying to implement.

"We´ve known about Vava Angwenyi and her work for a few years and was finally able to visit in early 2020. We just love her approach to coffee and her understanding of the larger picture of the impact the industry currently has and the potential for improvement. Vava Specialty Coffee seeks to create sustainable livelihoods for smallholder farmers as well as integrate more women and youth within the entire supply chain, and we are all into that. And also – the coffees we´ve had the pleasure of roasting and introduced are just great!"

Andreas Rød Borge, Nord Brenneri As

"Usually, when people hear of Vava, they think of her impact on the community and coffee industry, but it's worth mentioning that this great work also reflects on all the coffee that comes from Vava. Beautiful, crisp and complex washed lots, this year (2021) we had the opportunity to get a natural processed that still tastes like a typical Kenya but with an added layer of sweetness."

Interesting combination of forest fruit, cooked apple and nutella finish, together with velvety smooth body and malic-tartaric acidity;) Sweet and well balanced.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
