Kahawa shamba is a Kiswahili word meaning "Coffee Farm". In this project, tourists are invited to visit the typical coffee farmers where they become familiar with the whole processes of coffee production-from the beans to a cup of coffee. They also enjoy a local prepared lunch with the farmer family.
The farmers are members to one of the oldest cooperative movements in Africa-Kilimanjaro Native Cooperative Union (KNCU).For details about KNCU visit www.kncu.co.tz
The objective of Kahawa Shamba project is to create an additional income to her farmer members from the existing tourism industry in Kilimanjaro.
The farmers are well trained to host the tourists in their respective villages.
