Coffee Story

Nguvu is a blend of coffees from smallholder cooperatives in the Murang'a district, in Kenya's Central Province. Our Nguvu comes from Ruthaka Kamuchuni, Ruthaka Mukui, Mwirua Riakiania, Mwirua Kiambwe (the first part of the name is the cooperative and the second part is the factory or mill).

Murang'a is considered the traditional home of the Kikuyu tribe, which currently makes up 22 percent of Kenya's population. The area's beautiful red, loamy soil and startlingly high altitudes contribute to a juicy, berry-forward cup. These coffees are typically grown between 1,350 and 1,800 masl. Very high-quality coffees often derive from small co-ops and may be auctioned as separate lots.

All of Kenya's coffees are graded primarily by screen size (a measure of the size of the bean, with larger being more prized) immediately after milling. The coffees then proceed to the weekly auction at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange. AA is the top grade based on screening. After grading, the quality distinction "Top" or "Plus" indicates that a minimal number of small defects were allowed, as long as they have no effect on the cup.

Great service and outstanding product.

I became aware of your coffee through my wife. I was buying coffee beans from Costco and didn't know about your company. Per her suggestion I bought an assortment of flavors. I was greatly surprise by the quality of your product and the service your company provides. Add to that you are a black owned company and I have a sense of pride, too. I have recommended your company and brand to all coffee drinkers I know. I have plans to move next year to Oakley Calif. next year and I look forward to coming to your store to meet your staff and continue purchasing your coffee. Keep on keepin' on. 👍

Great flavor

I never got a chance to taste Red Bay Coffee when I lived in the area so I’m glad they ship! The Motherland has a great round flavor and isn’t too strong. Can’t wait to try the others.
