… We are not a forgotten people, we can finally earn a living’… This is the joy and motto of Rosebella Langat, producer of our lots named after the star Praecipua, one of the women of the Kenyan coffee community and owner of the Chepsangor Hills Coffee farm in Nandi Hills. There is only one coffee tree left on the farm that has been producing beans since the 1950s, all the others were cut down when the land was subdivided into smaller parts for the local population after independence. Chepsangor Hills Coffee now grows and processes specialty coffee and works with local farmers to produce good quality coffee. The bean production process is carefully managed using good agronomic practices that do not harm the environment. Rosabella’s coffee is grown on the fertile volcanic soils of the Nandi Hills in the Nandi Escape of the Rifft Valley at an altitude between 1700-2000 meters above sea level where SL28, Ruiru 11 and Batian varieties are grown.
The farm has a very varied infrastructure that allows all types of processes – washed, natural and honey – to be carried out. Their team is made up of young people who are eager to investigate and try new things.
