The aim of this study is to identify the bottlenecks of the Kenyan coffee value chain in order to allocate the most relevant inefficiencies of each step and try to find different and innovative solutions to overlap the difficulties that Kenyan coffee is facing. A literature study was conducted during the preparatory stage, in order to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the coffee value chain. This activity was followed by a field visit to coffee farms in Kenya, between August and September 2019. During this period a number of members in the coffee value chain were interviewed including farmers, wet/dry millers, millers, Coffee Research Institute, Coffee Directorate, Commodities Fund and the representative of these institutions for each coffee grower county.
