This micro-lot coffee is grown by the small-holder farmers of the Keera wet mill in Kisii County, a mountainous region of western Kenya best known for its bananas and soap stone trade. Keera, a leading factory in Kisii, is affiliated Morumba co-op, a sustainably focused society that educates its 2,500 members on best farming practices, extends credit and protects coffees from bandits. As many co-operatives in Kisii struggle with heavy loans and failing machinery, Keera stands strong processing about 30 tons of cherries annually. Factory manager, Edward Ochieng, uses fresh water from the Keera falls to soak and double wash the cherries. This sparkling coffee is farmed on about 300 plus hectares of small plots that sit along the Kisii Highlands catchment which begins west of the Kericho highlands and extends to Lake Victoria. The catchment has been known to resemble the Jamaica Blue Mountains!
