Mr. Kimani, our pioneer partner farmer in Kenya, Kiambu county examines his bumper coffee harvest in the month of December 2016.  Three – 3  months earlier, Connect Coffee Roasters engaged him on a  2 (two ) season partnership to improve coffee production. Being a small scale farmer of relatively an acre piece of land, challenges were many :  Inadequate access to finance, insufficient farm inputs, poor post harvest practices & lack of access to market with better prices.

“ Coffee farming has generally improved and the harvest is much better than other years. I enjoy an increase in coffee yield by an average of 10KG per tree compared to 6 – 8 kg per tree harvested earlier  . The support , lessons & experience from Connect coffee company was instrumental & has made me  a better farmer . ” Mr. Kimani – Partner Farmer.
