Ooh, a bright juicy Kenya Peaberry. Surprised? No. Delighted? Yasssss.
Kasinga Factory represents and collects cherry from over 650 active members in the often-overlooked eastern region of Machakos. This is NOT the Central Highlands; the ocean-facing Eastern Province is where you will find different profiles, different politics and – until recently - prices than found in the Central Highlands. This group offers additional services to members related to general education, and required training to access subsidized inputs. The future of coffee in Kenya will come from outside of the Central Highlands; hopefully from groups like Kasinga.
