I visited Kapsokisio Farmers Cooperative Society yesterday in Mount Elgon, Kenya.
It was very nice to meet with the farmers and see the new drying tables that we funded together with our guests on our 7th anniversary in 2014.
I have already tasted 3 lots from their fresh harvest and bought one lot that will be shipped to Norway soon. Hopefully the samples I have in my bag will taste even better so we can buy some more. The coffees have improved a lot this year. It is great to see that the Farmers at Kapsokisio are now consistently producing great tasting coffees year after year. I still think we could improve the quality even more by further training the farmers and also setting up shade nets over all their drying tables to increase the drying times a bit. But we have to take one step at a time.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our guests and followers who has helped us fund the construction of these drying tables.
As one of the board members expressed during our meeting together: “We are seeing the light in the end of the tunnel now and you have given us hope.”
We will be working harder in the coming years in order to make sure the farmers and the coffee from Kapsokisio can improve even more.
Thank you for the support.
