HISTORY OF KENYAN COFFEE

Coffee cultivation in Kenya dates back to 1893 when the brothers of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit brought the first Arabica coffee trees from Ethiopia and planted them just north of Nairobi.

Kenya has been investing a lot of time and energy in improving their coffees for some time.

This had the effect of driving up the prices of this variety of coffee which is now considered among the most expensive in the world. 13th in the world coffee export, Kenya devotes many efforts to improving its products.
