Our secret; Uniquely Rockbern, a coffee that’s “created” not “made”.

Rockbern is the embodiment of Africa youth entrepreneurship and a salute to the Republic of Kenya’s vibrant coffee brand. We are no longer a company. We are a brand that exudes passion, determination, happiness and the energy of young Kenyans that are keen to participate in shaping the continent’s future.

We love what we do, we work together to WOW you by offering quality coffee and service while we create direct and indirect employment. This is our culture.

Founded 6 years ago by two budding young entrepreneurs who drew their inspiration from a deep well of coffee knowledge running in their family; the two saw their parents struggle with coffee faming as they were growing up. Their parents however managed to provide a decent education to the two entrepreneurs through coffee farming in the Mt Kenya region. This  granted them a rare but valuable opportunity to understand the challenges, the struggles and the joys of peasant coffee farming. This inadvertently stimulated the desire in the two entrepreneurs to challenge the industry’s status quo by shifting to the non-traditional side of the value chain to create more transparency,think differently, offer more creative products and connect directly with global coffee lovers.

At Rockbern we seek to create value through direct employment by training young baristas,
expanding the market for Kenya coffee and revolutionizing the retail  hospitality across Africa.

Our grandfather was a renowned Kenyan coffee farmer, immediately after Kenya’s independence in 1963. He was among the first indigenous farmers to plant the SL 28 variety of coffee bush around the Mt Kenya region. Due to his passion and great understanding for great coffee, he was licenced as the proprietor of a private coffee estate by the government of Kenya.

He became farmer #29 in the whole Republic.

This undiluted knowledge has trickled down to us as his second generation.
