Kapsakisio lies in the slopes of Mt Elgon in western Kenya, bordering Uganda. The region has a potential for producing coffee of great quality but not well established like central Kenya. It’s under Kapsakisio cooperative society, with about 800-1000 small lot holders. The soil is fertile and rich in organic matter with a high water retention capacity. Altitude is between 1600-1700 masl. After harvesting, all coffee is delivered to the mill and depulped the same day, under wet processing methods. It is then fermented overnight, washed, soaked, then spread on drying tables. This coffee is not certified organic, however, no pesticides, herbicides or inorganic fertilizers are used in production of this coffee.
