This cup culminated from many Kinini Village hands and their passion for producing exceptional coffee. After only six years of production, Kinini Village is a cup in the perfect place between sweet and delicate, thanks to quality, communal support from all the farmers.
Those who enjoyed Rwanda Gatare and Kinini Village from the last harvest will enjoy its return to the menu.

Kinini Village was established in 2014 by Jacquie Turner and Malcolm Clear. They wanted to find a way to have a generational impact on communities without solely relying on fundraising money. Kinini Coffee signed a "lease" on parcels of land owned by various farmers throughout the area. This lease stipulated that Kinini would provide all these farmers with coffee trees, training, and organization. All the farmers had to do was agree to deliver these cherries to the Kinini Washing Station when they fruited in the future, for which they would receive payment. The local and federal governments processed due diligence on the lease to ensure farmers did not experience exploitation for their work.
Kinini Coffee started distributing coffee seedlings to farmers, setting up training, building their washing station, and organizing farmers. Whenever a farmer had a coffee inquiry, they would consult three specialists that would discuss responses before making the most informed decision—a truly detailed-oriented team. Three years after planting their trees (2017), they had their first substantive harvest. Farmers treat their coffee with care at the washing station, during cherry collection, and at drying tables, creating a truly high-quality product.
I purchased this as a gift and asked for a birthday greeting to be included. The Verve team included a nice birthday note and I received the coffee promptly and was able to present it to my friend on time. He has brewed it three times and says the roast and subtle flavors are perfect. Thanks Verve Team for your attention to detail! U allowed me to give a friend an awesome and unique birthday experience!
The smell of this coffee is intoxicating.. Smells like a bakery. Roasted to order is the way to go. Hard to go back to off the shelf coffee lol.
I did not like this coffee. Would not recommend.
I bought three of your coffees and all three are the best I’ve had from Verve, and I’ve had good before. Great.
In love with Kinini Village. Truly great coffee.
I was initially disappointed with this blend, cause it didn't make a very flavorful cup of drip coffee. But as a pour over or a french press-- DELICIOUS! And as others have commented, it has some very interesting notes!
