Abstract
This paper presents an economic analysis estate coffee production in Kenya.Based information from the 1983 Estate Survey,a series of models were developed to represent production costs and returns found within various estate categories.Notable difference in the level of profitability between irriged and non-irrigated estate are revealed. The analysis also indicated that while overall elite profit per hectare was satisfactory,a significant proportion of estates were incurring financial losses. Breakeven yields for each estate model are defined,and the effect of changes in coffee price on estate profitability remained.
