Quality Guarantee: Processing & Roasting
We guarantee a high and consistent quality with our small-farmer development program "KADERES" and our own processing plant.
KPD (plc) is not exclusively buying coffee from the farmers; with “KADERES” we are also supporting them before, during and after the harvest.
We improve the quality of harvesting methods, offer microcredits for investments in sheetings and local storage rooms, provide certification support, offer high-quality seeds and give our small farmers a guideline with our Internal-Control-System.
Only Handpicking - no stripping
To guarantee only ripe cherries, we don't strip our coffee. Working exclusively with the family members of the garden farmers, we are able to train them properly to ensure long-term success.
Due to our traditional sun drying, our coffee tastes more fruity and sweet with fewer acids. KPD-Coffee has the typical strong African body that is perfect for finishing an espresso blend.
Due to our KPD-Quality Standard our coffee is not dried on soil or concrete, only on clean tarps to guarantee no taste influence.
To ensure our high KPD-Quality-Standard we are finishing our own processing plant in April 2013.
We'll offer roasted and packed coffee in the middle of 2013 as well.
We'll enter the European B2C market with our own roasted coffee. This coffee will be marketed separately from our KPD-Range.
