Meru County is on the eastern slopes of Mt. Kenya and there is where you will find the Nyambene Hills, home to Gichugene, a boutique coffee mill with fastidious management. The farmers and staff of this mill are all cross trained on the methods of farming, processing and storing coffee, which includes managing the soil’s pH levels, water cleanliness, and sustainable farming practices. This additional effort is apparent in the cup and caught the attention of Kavi Bailey, a Kenya native who grew up in the US. As a Wall Street finance executive she found herself conducting an economic study of the Kenyan coffee auction system and realized she had the connections and deep desire to assist the exceptional coffee producers she encountered. Her deliberate actions have not only uncovered true gemstones for desirous coffee drinkers but have also created far superior prices for the farmers who produce these exceptional coffees. She has since left “The Street” and works exclusively to improve the economics of how coffee is transacted in Kenya and Ciel is pleased to participate in presenting Kenya AA Meru Gichugene to our customers.

Explore the delicious world of small batch coffee at Roaster’s Marketplace.
At Roaster’s Marketplace we are determined to give our customers the best selection of small batch roasted to order coffee possible. That is why we have teamed up with over thirty small batch coffee roasters around the country. We strive to bring you the best specialty coffee available from roasters who you can get to know. But we also focus on how the roasters are sourcing their coffee.
We work directly with small batch coffee roasters that responsibly source their coffee. Either directly from the farmer or cooperative or from coffee importers who follow our same ideas. Above all we believe quality specialty coffee starts at the farm. That is why these relationships are so important to us.
