This coffee was handpicked by smallholder farmers who are members of the Usongwe, Mwakakum and Umoja wa Songwe cooperatives. Geoffrey George Mbemba lives in the village of Mshewe and is a member of the Mwakakum co-op. He is 30 years old and has been farming for 10 years, since inheriting his 1-acre farm (765 trees) from his father. Geoffrey supports his wife, three children and grandmother with his coffee-production income. Last season he was able to produce 250 kgs of green coffee from his farm, earning more than 1 million Tanzania Shillings (about $440) in profit, which he plans to use, in part, to plant another acre in the coming season.
