Communal Shamba Coffee teamed up with fellow smallholder farmers to establish Mkulima Kwanza and collaborate in producing and processing specialty coffee using experimental approaches, which increase farmers’ premium prices, reduce production costs and improve quality from farm to cup. This Co-Op’s focus is on “mkulima kwanza” (translated from Swahili this means “farmers first”).
