Today we are talking about Kenya; A region known for producing some of the most vibrant, complex, highly prized, and highly-priced coffees.
In this episode, Christian catches up with Aislinn Cullen from Melbourne Coffee merchants (our sister company). Aislinn has been working in specialty coffee for ten years both here in Australia and the United States. Today Aislinn heads up coffee buying in Kenya and also manages Melbourne Coffee Merchant's relationships with coffee roasters throughout Australia.
Aislinn talks about her experiences visiting Kenya, how we buy coffee, and some of the challenges facing Kenya’s coffee industry as housing developments on the outskirts of Nairobi are pushing coffee production further to the west.
