Whereas the lion’s share of Kenyan coffee farms are smallholder plots of less than 4 hectares, Endebess Estate is 758 hectares, 30% of which is planted with coffee. The Estate has been producing coffee in the Northern Rift Valley since the 1940s but has changed ownership a few times in its history. The current owners took over management in 2011 and have been working on improving the quality and productivity of the estate since that time - - rarely do you find a mbuni (natural coffee) of such distinction. Endebess Estate also takes the social welfare of their workers seriously, recently renovating over 15 houses, sponsoring education for students, and developing other social and infrastructure improvement programs.
