Our Fair Trade Certified Kenya AA is farmed on the Pearless Estate, a sustainable farm located in Nyeri County, Kenya's most revered coffee growing region. Established in the mid 1920’s by British settlers, this Estate is among the oldest and largest coffee plantations in Kenya. The Pearless Estate is renowned for growing the most-prized and complex SL 28 and SL 34 Bourbon varieties, a rare occurrence in Kenya where there is a growing use of coffee hybrids.
The Estate is committed to high worker standards and supports its permanent and 20+ seasonal employees with regular training on advanced safety and processing methods, along with education on good farming practices. In late 2017, Pearless Estate was awarded the Starbuck's C.A.F.E certification for its leading quality and sustainable standards.
