More than a decade ago, before the term “microlot” became common usage in specialty coffee, Cafe Imports began direct sourcing coffees in Kenya during a time when most importers were unwilling to take the chance on bringing in small, traceable lots of coffee from individual mills and estates.

Jason Long, one of Cafe Imports’ principal partners and coffee buyers, decided that the risk was worth the potential reward. Thanks to Jason’s willingness to go out on a limb, our longstanding partnerships in Kenya allow us to source exceptional, traceable Kenyan coffees, often from the same factories and estates that we have partnered with for years. We are also able to offer a selection of full-container, mid-price lots of solid quality, including our signature Kichwa Tembo and Regional Select Uteuzi Jimbo projects, that make for great blend or lower-cost single-origin options.
