The coffee story

Located at the foot of the picturesque Nandi Hills is Chepsangor Hills Coffee Estate. A passion project started by Rosebella Langat.  
Rosebella also works to support other women small holder producers in the region to achieve sustainable production that leads to economic empowerment.
At Chepsangor estate they celebrate women coffee farmers producing exquisite Kenyan single origin Arabica from the Nandi hills -  A beautiful region of rivers, waterfalls and abundant rain, warm winds sweep across the valley from Lake Victoria. The climate enables balanced ripening of the coffee cherry and combined with rich volcanic soils, resulting in a unique flavor profile.
It is the care of the future that led  the founder to establish Chepsangor Hills Estate and to start working with over 100 small-scale coffee producers. At Chepsangor Hills Estate they believe in meeting their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. 
They take every effort to ensure a decent living wage for their employees and farmers through specialty coffee. This keeps children of neighboring small-scale farmers in school and provides economic empowerment to the women coffee farmers. 
Chepsangor Hills Estate also supports families to diversify their income and grow food (indegenous vegetables , paw paws, bananas, beans, ground nuts) for balanced household nutrition. 


 

The process

From July to December, the fields turn a vivid red as the cherries ripen. Our coffee is not picked – it is chosen, selecting only the very highest quality cherries which are then processed within 8 hours, to produce honey (semi-washed), washed (fermented/eco-pulped) and natural coffee. Chepsangor hills estate is known for quality, innovation and sustainability.

"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."
