Meru County is on the eastern slopes of Mt. Kenya and there is where you will find the Nyambene Hills, home to Gichugene, a boutique coffee mill with fastidious management. The farmers and staff of this mill are all cross trained on the methods of farming, processing and storing coffee, which includes managing the soil’s pH levels, water cleanliness, and sustainable farming practices. This additional effort is apparent in the cup and caught the attention of Kavi Bailey, a Kenya native who grew up in the US. As a Wall Street finance executive she found herself conducting an economic study of the Kenyan coffee auction system and realized she had the connections and deep desire to assist the exceptional coffee producers she encountered. Her deliberate actions have not only uncovered true gemstones for desirous coffee drinkers but have also created far superior prices for the farmers who produce these exceptional coffees. She has since left "The Street" and works exclusively to improve the economics of how coffee is transacted in Kenya and Ciel is pleased to participate in presenting Kenya AA Meru Gichugene to our customers.
