Ritesh is the owner & CEO of Spring Valley Coffee, Kenya’s original specialty coffee roaster, a business he bought in 2018.
Having introduced the Flat White to Kenya, Ritesh wanted to combine his passion for coffee and his sense of purpose for people and the planet - and his need to control his own supply!
Prior to Spring Valley Coffee, Ritesh founded Naked Pizza Kenya, a company he sold to Pizza Hut.
Before becoming an entrepreneur, Ritesh worked in investment banking & private equity in Europe, the US, and the Middle East.
When he is not drinking coffee, Ritesh is often found in forests of Nairobi walking his two dogs, and is an active member of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization.
