Coffee Tour experience

Coffee production is a significant  aspect in Tanzania for the  economy growth, two types of coffee exist in Eastern arc Mountains that is Robust and Arabic types of coffee, however due to the few years ago suffering from poor market in the World Market the people in Usambara mountains decided to ignore coffee farms and prefer other crops hence now days very few people in our community have coffee trees in their farms, as far as now coffee is doing great in the World market we are trying to encourage the local people to start planting the coffee trees to their farms. In trying to implement this through our Aggro-farming Program we contacted the Tanzania Coffee Research Institute to visit our community and train them on the good ways to plant, care and harvest coffee. Here you will learn about coffee from farm to cup and process your coffee through local ways until you celebrate a cup of coffee you made by your own hands.
