Coffee Partner Highlight - Kushikamana

Through a project initiated by Counter Culture, small-farm owners in different parts of Kenya's growing regions started working together to discuss and test new techniques to improve the quality of their coffee. These historically independent growers chose the name Kushikamana, which means "connected" in Swahili, to represent the unity of their group. The Coffee from Kushikamana is one of the three blend components featured in Iridescent, as well as coffees from Ethiopia and Colombia. More info about the coffees in Iridescent here.

In 2018, they donated $22,135 to six different Seeds projects. These projects range from investments to increase productivity, to projects that fund teacher's salaries or money to plant trees that protect water sources. To date, they've contributed over $230,000 to these important initiatives. Learn more here.
