The Coffee Board of Kenya is the apex body for the coffee industry, established in 1934 after the enactment of the coffee industry ordinance in 1933. The Board was charged with the responsibility to carry out regulation and marketing of coffee. The auctions as a mode of selling Kenya coffee was established in 1934 and created in 1935 to enhance quality assessment through the grading. This role has changed over time through various amendments to the law. In 2001, the coffee Act cap 333 was repeated and the coffee Act No. 9 of 2001 enacted, establishing the Board as a statutory body under the Ministry of Agriculture, solely to regulate the coffee industry.

The object and purpose for which the Board is established is to promote competition in the coffee industry, production, processing and value addition including branding of Kenya coffee locally and internationally, and generally to regulate the coffee industry in the public interest. The following general objectives form the basis for the Boards activities:

To formulate policies and rules to regulate and develop the coffee industry in the consultation with the Ministry of Agriculture.
To carry out registration and licensing of coffee nurseries, growers, pulping stations, millers, marketing agents, management agents, buyers, roasters, packers, warehousemen and auctioneers to ensure adherence to standards.
