Kiajibbi AA

Situated within the Kiambu County, this region is well-known for coffee production in Kenya. In recent years, climate change, unstable prices, increased cost of inputs and lack of capital have led to the decrease in coffee production within this area.

About Kenya

Despite its proximity to the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia, coffee growing was introduced in Kenya relatively late – by Scottish missionaries, initially, and then commercially around 1900. Despite the late start, today, it is a country renowned for having some of the best coffees in the world. Nonetheless, Kenya’s coffee sector faces challenges for the future, and low global prices combined with climate change and population growth have diminished the country’s output over the last decade.
