On the coffee tours the tourist will visit the characteristic small coffee farms that belong to the farmers who are members of Village. During the program they will become familiar with the whole process of coffee production. The visitor will also enjoy a local prepared lunch and of course a cup of local coffee will be brewed. The farmer themselves will be guiding the visitors.
The main activities during the coffee tour are:
- An excursion to a nearby coffee farm;
- Coffee berry picking and pulping;
- Explanation about organic coffee farming and
- Fair-trade standards;
- Processing of the coffee from beans to Cup;
- Coffee drinking at the farm.
With the most popular coffee tour in town, Kahawa Shamba is a laudable community-run venture that not only shows you how beans are grown, picked and roasted, but offers insight into the lives of the Chagga coffee farmers who live on Kilimanjaro’s lower slopes. Meals with local families can be arranged, as can additional village and waterfall walks. It’s easiest to book at Union Café.
