The coffee story

Chepnorio Farmers Co-operative society was registered on June 27 1985 under the leadership of Mr. Cheruiyot Rono and some membership of 30 farmers. The society initially used to produce 50,000 kilos of coffee cherry with little payment of around ksh.7.00 per kilo. Over the years they have grown exponentially with a vision and desire to improve the living standards of its members. To date the society has an average production capacity of 770,000 kilos of coffee cherry a season and the average pay for every kilo of cherry delivered has grown to almost ksh.80.00. The society in 2017 opened a new processing unit and now has four operational factories through which the farmers expect to further increase their income by adding value to their produce through primary processing.  The societies headquarters is situated in Ma-gire sub location, Chilchilla ward, Kericho County. The society now benefits an additional 400 farmers of the societies total of 900. Of these 102 farmers are members of the youth group and 94 are women. Overtime the society has also purchased a tractor to aid in transportation of their produce as well as farm inputs.

The process

Coffee is handpicked, delivered to the various factories where it is sorted then soaked overnight in tanks. It is then dried on raised drying beds and during the rainy season most coffee is dried in covered green-house like structures on raised beds.

"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."

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.
