Kahawa Shambani Coffee Tour

This tour is a must for coffee lovers, but it does more than take you through the process that will turn a tiny seedling in to an awesome steaming hot cup of coffee. This tour, run by the local cooperative will give you an insight into the Chaggo coffee farmers who live on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro.  It is one of these very coffee farmers who will take you on this tour lasting 3-4 hours in total.  This initiative provides the farmers with an alternative source of income, namely tourism.

Coffee is the second largest cash crop in Tanzania, and ironically (or not) you will find that the farmers drink very little of it, they drink mainly tea.  It makes sense when you think about it, why consume your source of income?  The farmers here belong to the KNCU co-operative and they will always strive to get the best price for the farmer’s crop.  Fair Trade pays the best, and you can see first-hand how buying Fair Trade products helps the man on the ground, producing the goods.

At the end of the tour you will have learned all there is to know about coffee, you will even have harvested some beans yourself, the tour culminates in a traditional Tanzanian lunch accompanied by a freshly brewed cup of coffee, of course.  You can even purchase a bag of beans to take home with you, it makes a great gift for any coffee lover, or you could just treat yourself.
