Farmers in the region are susceptible to a number of challenges, namely; an aging generation of coffee trees, negative effects from climate change and fluctuations in the coffee market price.
Climate change in particular is having difficult repercussions, as fluctuating season’s effects harvesting, as well as unexpected rains increasing the length of the drying process. Fortunately, local initiatives are attempting to combat these problems.
Working with agricultural development agents, farmers in the region are finding new support to help combat climate change as well as plant new coffee trees, helping to improve the sustainable production of coffee in the area.
Regarding market price fluctuations, stakeholder organisations are working to pay fair price to farmers for their coffee production. Primrose who is the partner of this washing station pays more than the market price for a kilogram of red cherry, and those farmers that bring quality red cherry are paid a cash incentive, ensuring higher-than-average overall quality.
A coffee familiar for its high sweet notes, definitely recommend to have it brewed as V60 or Clever Dripper!
