New Origins Reports: Peter's Trip to Kenya and an Update from the 21st de Septiembre Co-op!
Following his recent trip to Rwanda, Counter Culture Coffee’s director of coffee and co-owner Peter Giuliano made a quick trip to Kenya. Travelling a few hours north of Nairobi, Peter met with some of Counter Culture’s coffee producing partners and sampled new harvests. In his report, Peter outlines somewhat-recent legal changes in the Kenyan coffee trade and explains the impact of those changes on our buying practices—as well as revealing some interesting details about coffee harvesting and flavor profile!

For our 2007 Holiday Coffee, CCC went a step further than ever before in realizing our dedication to connecting coffee producers with coffee consumers by focusing our attention on a single coffee: the 21st de Septiembre from the co-operative of the same name in Oaxaca, Mexico. Now that the growers have finished harvesting and the co-op has finished processing coffee for the year, we got an update.
