We care about coffee and the wellbeing of the hardworking farmers and people who consume, trade, promote and research about it.


In the past one and a half years, I have been closely monitoring transactions at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange (NCE). One major improvement I have noted from the NCE is that they now have a website which is a big improvement. This helps to fulfil one of the NCE's mandate of fostering transparency in the coffee market.

The Nairobi Coffee Exchange (NCE) auction is on recess until 26 July 2016. Sale 30 on 21 June 2016 was the last sale prior to the recess for the season 2015/2016 which has been running since 6 October 2015. We have been closely following transactions at the auction and learning about how it works. It has been quite an interesting journey and a steep learning curve.
