Meet Smallholder producers

This exceptional Kenyan coffee is sourced from smallholders and single-family farms in Nyeri County and processed at Kamoini Factory. Kamoini is one of 19 small wet mills in the area belonging the Othaya Farmers’ Cooperative Society. This co-op registered in 1956 with 250 farmer members, and membership is closer to 15,000!

Othaya Co-op centers around strong social unity, holistic business management, and commitment to quality at all points of the supply chain. It has both a farm store and nursery for members, and offers farm management workshops, training for managers, input, equipment and coffee seedlings. Most farmers near Kamoini grow their coffee on an average of half an acre, often beneath the shade of banana and macadamia trees.

Nyeri, Kenya

Coffee from the Nyeri District is sometimes referred to as “the heart of Black Gold Coffee” due to the intensity of flavor packed into slow-developing, very dense beans. Grown in the highlands between the eastern base of the Aberdare Range and the western slopes of Mt Kenya in young volcanic soil and blessed by strategic rainfall, beans develop a classic balanced Kenyan taste profile: fresh fruitiness, crisp citrus, bright and balanced acidity.

Part of Kenya’s rich agricultural sector, the Nyeri region became UTZ certified in 2008, and since then, there has been a tremendous improvement in coffee quality. Smallholders rather than large estates are most common, and most growers belong to cooperative organizations which own processing mills to which members can bring their harvested cherries.

Duvall, WA

Anchorhead Coffee

Sporting a moody, maritime vibe and serving up killer coffee and their own baked goods, Anchorhead Coffee is doing coffee right in Washington state (Duvall, to be exact, with café locations in downtown Seattle and in Issaquah). Launched in 2013, Anchorhead sailed right into the big leagues, winning the 2015 “America’s Best Espresso” competition with their Ethiopian coffee, finaling for a Good Food Award with their Guatemalan roast, and collecting numerous awards at annual Golden Bean competitions.

When long-time audio engineers Mike Steiner and Jake Paulson decided to wind down traveling the world, combining their passion for coffee into a cafe and roastery just made sense. With Mike handling the roasting and sourcing aspects and Jake developing the cafe and marketing side, Anchorhead continues to expand their vision of sourcing expressive, lively coffees, then roasting them in a way that brings out the intrinsic character of each. Yup. They love coffee, cafe culture, and serving up a sweet and balanced cup they're proud to put the Anchorhead Coffee name on. (They also love toys like drones, cameras, dirt bikes and motorcycles).
