Vava Coffee is a social enterprise with a business model that supports a network of coffee producers in different regions of East Africa. Their “Direct and Fairtrade” model brings speciality grade coffees to roasters, consumers and importers who pay fair, premium prices.
Wanting to promote positive social disruption within the coffee industry, Vava Coffee provides sustainable livelihoods for smallholder coffee farmers tracing the production of high-quality coffee beans to the independent smallholder coffee farmer.
The company aims to contribute to better future prospects for coffee communities and the industry as a whole and is geared towards sustainable livelihoods for the people and communities they work with. Since 2009, Vava Coffee has worked with over 30,000 smallholder farmers across Kenya.
