MEET OUR COO, CO-FOUNDER
I was born and raised in a small coffee and tea farming village on the western side of Kenya. Growing up, I was involved in coffee farming, helping my parents with tasks around the farm, including coffee cherry-picking and going to the coffee processing factories, which were co-ops owned.
I grew up in an era where coffee farmers were underpaid. Besides them remaining patient and passionate about the coffee farming business, the story is the same today. As I got involved with community building, I have also closely followed the coffee industry and realized that every person in the value chain gets paid reasonably except the farmer.
This is more evident with the small-scale farming business that has a broad representation of women. If these farmers were paid fairly, they would be able to remain in the coffee business and live decently. I am committed to helping our farmers, produce high-quality coffee, get fair prices, and our consumers drink quality coffee that they can trace back to the origin.
