Kericho County may not have the same prominence in the coffee world as its not-too-distant cousin to the east, Nyeri County, but in the last decade it has established itself with a standard of excellence. The future of certified coffee from Kenya depends on the successes of the hardworking farmers and processing mills in Kericho. Kabngetuny Farmers Cooperative Society is one cooperative that is working to make this transformation into a reality. They were one of the first cooperatives in the region to work with Fairtrade, and have since focused on partnerships to promote women's ownership of coffee farms and smallscale organic conversion projects.
