Amkeni 2016 #2: Dry-Milling and the TCB

Welcome back to my little report about Matthias‘ Amkeni-visit 2016. I went to Tanzania to meet and work with the farmers at Amkeni an also to understand how coffee production is organised in Tanzania. This post is about my second day which was taking me to Moshi were a lot of coffee institutions are situated. Our stations today were several dry-milling factories and the Tanzania Coffee Board (TCB). Godwin and me were accompanied by Mr Kimaro, the treasurer of Amkeni.

Day one of Matthias‘ Amkeni-visit 2016

Hi and welcome to my little report about day one of Matthias‘ Amkeni-visit 2016. This is to document his origin trip to the Amkeni Coffee Group in Tanzania from September 1st to 9th 2016. Amkeni is our first direct trade project in a larger scale and we have been buying their coffees for 2 consecutive harvests now. Read about it here and here. It is definitely time to start working with the farmers, match our goals and get to know each other.
