Moses Kamura Nganga is a small farm owner and grows primarily SL28 in Kiambu Kenya. He’s someone who had previously delivered coffee fruit to a co-op local to him, but he is one of many growing disenfranchised with his and his family’s hard work literally getting blended with so many other deliveries. Commodification and erasure come to mind. Not great.
