Must read


Kenya may get a bumper harvest later this year as rains in key growing areas boost yields. The country is getting good rains, which will improve yields for the harvest from September to December, said Mansukh Shah, managing director of Alanwood, a Nairobi-based trading house.

Rains have been favourable this year in top-growing areas of Mount Kenya, Machakos and Central Province and bean size and quality will be good, he said.

“We are expecting a good harvest both for the early crop and the main harvest from September to December,” Kizito Keya, a coffee trader for Mombasa, Kenya-based Mumba Coffee, said by phone from Nairobi.
