Ivory (or Miguongo in Kirinyaga) sits in Kirinyaga County, the home of Mount Kenya. The terroir benefits from rich, nutritious soil that produces very complex coffees. The taste of this Ivory AB is the epitome of a Kenyan coffee - juicy blackcurrant, refreshing hibiscus, and great sweetness.
The farm was established in 1959 when Haniel Miguongo invested in coffee using his savings from his previous job as a teacher. In 2000 he passed on the management to his son Njeru, and now the estate is managed by his Njeru’s wife Irene. We have an exclusive single-farm partnership with Ivory and have already seen the quality of the coffee improve as we support Irene in upgrading their facilities.
