Nourish Your Coffee the Exome Way!

Coffee is a key export of Kenya considering that it is the fifth largest foreign exchange earner for the country. Kenyan coffee exports almost doubled in January 2024 with 2,685 tonnes sold compared to 1,478 tonnes in December 2023. Revenues earned by the coffee sector of Kenya also rose by 72%. This is a clear indicator that there is a renewed interest globally in Kenyan coffee which puts the growers at a greater responsibility to produce berries of consistent quality and increase productivity.

Nutrition is the key to improving berry quality and marketability and most importantly, increasing yield. After all, your coffee tree is only as strong as its least available nutrient. Once your plant has nutritional deficiencies, it become susceptible to various diseases.
