Although not new to growing coffee, both communities that we worked with in Uganda were new to working in cooperative style setups. They had been growing coffee for longer than could be remembered - decades at least! But knew they weren't getting the most from their labour by selling it individually. They decided change was in order and at the start of the year, they organised themselves into a cooperative. By working together in this way they can share resources, work at improving quality together and hopefully reach wider markets. As the most experienced woman of the community, Agatha was chosen as the head of the cooperative. She invited us to visit her land was excited to show us the many coffee plants she had growing.

Working from coffeeshops is my favorite part of working remotely 👩🏻💻☕️☀️ I can choose the least busiest times (sometimes on weekends), make it as comfortable as possible and go be productive✊🏼
It allows me to change my surroundings every day, be inspired, make a photo content, plan it and post it at the same time 🌱

A regular on our bench, @neroscuro_coffee are a specialty micro-roastery based here in Northern Italy. They only roast once the customer has ordered to ensure freshness and quality, so you can be sure these beans are something special.
Swing by ORSONERO this week to to take these beans for a test run - we have them roasted for filter & espresso, so tell us what you like and what you don’t and we'll help you figure out the best coffee for you! 🙌🏼
F R U I T B O M B • Naturally processed, intensely tropical and juicy with a nice complexity of lively fruit flavors. The Ethiopia Abdi Gudina is back this week. This coffee is from a group of small holder farmers guided by Farm Africa's Participatory Forest Managing Cooperative program. An example of Farm Africa’s progressive approach is the integration of active resource management with capacity building in coffee production, specifically relating to forest conservation. Coffee farmers are taught to protect and conserve natural forest ecosystems while cultivating coffee under the forest canopy. Farmers commit to sustainable farming practices in exchange for the instruction they receive. Through this commitment, valuable forest resources are preserved and farmers realize the benefit of elevated incomes from improved coffee production volume and quality. The PFMC structure allows small farmers greater access to specialty coffee markets. Premiums from coffee sales help to fund the construction and maintenance of a central office, store house and drying beds for each PFMC. While there are 112 active PFMC’s in Ethiopia, most are self-sufficient and no longer working with Farm Africa. Eventual autonomy is one of the goals for each nascent PFMC, so this graduation is absolutely seen as a positive event. We’ll be featuring this beautiful coffee at the tasting bar this weekend, Thursday to Saturday from 9am to 2pm. .
