Coffee for Everyday People

Women Produced

Meet Beatrice, the inspiring Kenyan-born founder of Kalya Coffee. Beatrice’s journey is a testament to passion, resilience, and the power of community. In the early 2000s, she moved to York, seeking new opportunities and experiences. However, it was during the unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic that Beatrice's path took a transformative turn.

Returning home to Kenya, she rediscovered her roots and developed a deep passion for farming. This passion led her to explore collaborations with women producers in her native Kericho. Partnering with Lot 20, a Kericho-based exporter, Beatrice embarked on a mission to empower and uplift the women in her community through coffee production.

Today, Beatrice proudly launches the first of many products under Kalya Coffee—a meticulously washed Kenyan coffee sourced from majority women producers in Ainamoi, Kericho. Each cup of Kalya Coffee is not just a delightful experience for the palate but also a celebration of the hard work, dedication, and empowerment of the women behind it. Join us in savoring this exceptional coffee and supporting the remarkable journey of Beatrice and the women of Kericho.
