Kenya is the 16th largest coffee producer in the world by volume, and is recognised today as a prominent specialty coffee origin. Growing regions in the country (especially its central highlands) offer rich, acidic soil, and optimal conditions for specialty coffee production. The country produces an average of 750,000 bags of coffee per year and relies heavily on smallholder farmers, as the average farm size in Kenya is 1 to 2 hectares. Many grow just 150 coffee trees: They take the cherry to centrally located mills where their coffees are weighed, sorted and combined into batches large enough for processing and export.
