Our Coffee Production

Our Production Potential

Jiratamo maintains 420 hectares of land together with out-grower farmers with a potential 400 hectares of additional land available to expand in the future. Jiratamo maintains its own seedling production nursery sites where we carefully select seeds from wild-grown mother trees.

This allows us to maintain the inherent quality of the coffee and thereby continuing genetic rejuvenation from the wild-grown mother coffee trees. Currently, we are producing 400 – 450 tons of organic coffee per annum from young, high-quality coffee trees. In the future when the farm reaches its full potential we will produce up to 10-12 thousand tons per annum.
