“We chose Kenya as our first gateway for Africa-based expansion due to many benefits Kenya provides to the private sector in terms of investment incentive and other critical aspects that are needed for startup businesses to flourish,” said Meshasha in a statement.

The family-owned business was the first coffee roasting company in Ethiopia to provide roasted and ground coffee to the local and international markets.
