Great Rift Coffee is a licensed coffee milling company. We are located outside of Eldoret town along Kisumu road in Nandi County, Kenya. Our coffee parchments are sourced from Nandi County and the surrounding counties in the Rift Valley region. All of our processes from sorting, grading, milling and finally roasting adhere to a strict quality code. This is to ensure that we only deliver the best cup of coffee to our clients.Read more..
We have invested a lot in our coffee processing machines so that our coffee process is efficient with minimal wastage. We won’t lie, fancy machines by themselves, can’t make the best coffee in the world! For that extra factor that sets us apart from our competitors we have a dedicated and passionate staff that loves everything about coffee!
Farmers are at the heart of Great Rift Coffee that is why we make it our mission to ensure that they are happy and satisfied. This is because their prosperity is directly linked with ours. We follow up on all our farmers and provide them with access to cheap loans as well as coffee seedlings.
We source all our coffee locally from farmers within our county. This is to promote a coffee growing culture within our county and also to ensure farmers make a profit from their harvest.Read more
During this stage we remove what has remained of the fruit from the coffee bean. This is usually in the form of a dried parchment skin or what we usually refer to as dried mucilage.Read more
We grade our coffee beans according to different criteria. These include the size of the coffee bean, how it was prepared and picked, and how good it tastes, or its cup quality.Read more
Here we use heat to change the chemical and physical properties of the coffee beans. This is how our coffee acquires its characteristic aroma and taste. Roasting is highly dependent on heat so it requires a lot of care.Read more
Coffee farming is a capital and labour intensive venture. We have partnered with our growers to provide them with loans at a lower rate and a flexible payment period. This enables them to take care of their families and also ensures that they have enough money to cater for the production year. This also provides us with a constant supply of parchments all year.
Farmers are an integral part of GREAT RIFT Coffee limited. Without them we could not get our supply of coffee parchments on time or at all. We have set up a coffee nursery to supply farmers with quality seedlings at an affordable price. This will make the value of their harvest increase. Farm inputs such as fertilizer have a direct impact on the input cost in a coffee production year.
As GREAT RIFT Coffee limited we are aware that we should protect our environment not only for ourselves but also for our future generations so that they may experience it as we have. We partner with the locals around our area to plant more trees in order to attract more rainfall to the area and also to achieve the government objective of at least ten percent national forest cover.
