Mara Coffee was created in 2019. As coffee production is relatively new in this area, the farm was set up from the ground. This area is very favorable for coffee growing, however, historically the local tribe, the Masai people, has been pastoral nomads.
The farm is near the town of Lolgorien and only a couple of kilometers away from the Masai Mara. Currently, the farm is processing most of their coffee as natural. For this process, they ferment the cherry in barrels for 4 days and then dry it on raised beds.
Before putting the cherries inside the barrels, it is carefully handpicked to remove the defective cherries. The coffee is then handpicked a second time during the drying process. The farm has established a nursery to have a stable supply of seedlings. Moreover, they have started handing out seedlings to surrounding farmers, to offer them a stable cash crop and increase coffee production in the area.
