About the farm:

Mara Coffee was created in 2019. As coffee production is relatively new in this area, the farm was set up from the ground. This area is very favourable for coffee growing, however historically the local tribe, the Masai people, have been pastoral nomads.

The farm is near the town of Lolgorien and only a couple of kilometres away from the Masai Mara.

Processing:

Currently, the farm is processing most of its coffee as natural. For this process, they are fermenting the cherry in barrels for 4 days and then dry it on raised beds. Before putting the cherries inside the barrels, it is carefully handpicked in order to remove the defective cherries. The coffee is then handpicked a second time during the dried process.

Sustainability:

The farm has established a nursery in order to have a stable supply of seedlings. Moreover, they have started handing out seedlings to surrounding farmers, in order to offer them a stable cash crop and increase coffee production in the area.
