Kawaha 1893 + Colonization of Kenya

No Bad Reviews: A Coffee Podcast by No Bad Reviews: A Coffee Podcast

Episode notes

In this week’s episode we switch gears and try a specialty coffee, Kahawa 1893. We still have a founder educated at Harvard with a Wall Street resume, but her roots diverge from the typical coffee company story. Margaret Nyamumbo was raised on a coffee farm in Kenya and is determined to bring Kenyan coffee to the world and help women farmers while she’s at it.

A story about Kenya would not be complete without a tale of British colonization, the Mau Mau rebellion, and the often troubled building of an independent country after. Once again, we find ourselves absolutely appalled by the British. Please note, this episode does have a trigger warning for some particularly heinous atrocities that we briefly discuss.
