The Kevote wet mill is located in Makengi, part of Embu County which is nestled on the Southern slopes of Mount Kenya. It was founded all the way back in 1957 by a group of 100 farmers in Since then it has grown a lot and currently encompasses three different processing facilities and has a membership of around 2600 active farmers.

Farmers selectively hand pick the ripest red cherries and deliver them for wet milling the same day. The parchment is then sorted and cleaned in water taken from the local rivers, before being spread out to dry in the hot, African sun. We love the syrupy, clean notes of stone fruits and blackberry.

Dry parchment is milled and bagged at Highlands Coffee mills Cherries are hand picked and taken to the wet mill on the same day. Cherries are sorted and cleaned in water taken from the local river which is then filtered and cleaned before being returned. Cherries them selves are spread out under the sun to dry before being bagged and transported to the dry mill (Highlands Coffee Mills) and ultimately taken to Nairobi ready for export.

To make sure you always get the freshest coffee, we roast and ship twice a week; on Mondays and Thursdays. This means you'll always have coffee shipped to you within a week of being roasted.
