When you exist to seek the best, the distance you’re prepared to go to source the earth’s best coffee knows no bounds. This spirit of adventure takes us to unforgettable places where we discover incredible coffee.
In the shadow of mighty Mt. Kenya in the Nyeri region, we met the tenacious coffee farmers from the surrounds of Karatina town. The rich volcanic soil of the mountain’s misty slopes helps produce a coffee that delivers exceptional flavour.
We source our coffee from the farmers of the Ruthagati Cooperative and pay them directly, ensuring a fair trade that keeps their business sustainable and ours meaningful.
This single origin coffee has a berry aroma alive with vibrant acidity and a fruity caramel flavour. This specialty coffee is optimally roasted in South Africa to deliver a taste as rich as the continent it comes from.
This fully washed coffee is grown at altitudes of between 1650 and 1700 metres above sea level and is of the Cofea Arábica SL28, SL34 and Ruiru 11 varietals.
The Ruthagati Cooperative is located near the town of Karatina in the Nyeri region of Kenya and is a member of the greater Rutuma Farmers’ Cooperative Society. The cooperative’s vision is to produce quality coffee using sustainable agricultural and processing practices that will ensure higher production and better returns to the farmer.
Bean There has been purchasing coffee from Ruthagati since 2007 in increasing quantities each year and through regular visits we have been encouraged by the improvements in the quality and quantity of coffee produced.
Ruthagati works closely with agronomy training institutions which aim to provide farmers with support and address issues of agricultural degradation. Bean There is committed to work with Ruthagati farmers to ensure that they receive a fair price despite the fluctuations in the international coffee market and the effects of climate change.
Tip the Farmer creates an opportunity for coffee lovers everywhere to directly tip the farmers who produce the exceptional coffee we enjoy.
