Why you’ll enjoy it

The name Zuri means “beautiful” in Swahili which represents how we feel about the irreplaceable flavors in this bag. When cupping for selection, we look for that quintessential Kenya profile; black currant aromatics, blackberry juiciness, citric acidity, and overall cup intensity. We select the stand-out lots to feature under the Kenya Zuri mark.

Producer Spotlight: Kenya Ndaroini Farmers Union

Ndaroini means “place of rest” in the Swahili language. The members of the group chose this name because they traveled long distances to the Gichaithaini washing station. The farmers would stop along the journey and stay the night at Ndaroini to rest. Becoming frustrated with the time it took to deliver, the farmers joined together to form their own washing station in very close proximity to their homes. In 1984, the Ndaroini washing station opened after petitioning the government for 2.5 acres of land to build after years of persistent campaigning. 

The group partnered with Trabocca in 2019 when Trabocca offered to pay a significant amount (100 ksh per kg of cherry compared to the local average of 60 ksh) for their entire crop. Trabocca then reached out to us. As long-term partners, this fully transparent and revolutionary supply chain has come full circle. The members of Ndaroini are bold and determined – not unlike the intense classic Kenya flavors found in their coffees.
