  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    This cup is a culmination of many hands, knowledge, and passion for producing exceptional coffee. A relatively new cooperative, Kinini has become an example of quality and public support in just six short years.

    Kinini Village was established in 2014 by Jacquie Turner and Malcolm Clear. The founders wanted to find a way to have a generational impact on the community without continually fundraising. The structure of the project was unprecedented. Kinini Coffee leased parcels of land owned by various farmers throughout the area. The lease provided all farmers with coffee trees, training, and organization, and in turn, each farmer agreed to deliver their cherries to the Kinini Washing Station for payment. Lawyers at the local and federal governments did their due diligence to ensure farmers weren't being taken advantage of.

    Coffee seedlings were distributed to farmers, training was set up, a washing station built, and farmers were organized. Kinini was born. Whenever a coffee question popped up, the farms had direct access to 3 specialists, aiding them in making the most informed decision. In 2017, 3 years after the trees had been planted, Kinini had their first substantial harvest. The care is taken at the farm, at the washing station, during cherry collection, and on the drying, tables have paid off.
