You already know about the state of the coffee industry. There’s some not-so-decent stuff going on. But, don’t be too discouraged: There are a lot of organizations and companies trying to reverse this trend. Look at TechnoServe, or the East African Fine Coffee Association (EAFCA) for examples of good people doing good things with coffee in the country of origin, or contact us to find out who is doing what in your community.
Technoserve is one of those nonprofits with a small name in America, but a large presence on the ground. Visit their website to learn more about how they are positively affecting coffee-growing communities.
Another organization working towards helping coffee growing communities is EAFCA. Their Secretariat is located in Kampala, Uganda, and they carry out valuable work in ten major Eastern and Southern African countries. EAFCA’s mission focuses on quality coffee production.
These companies and groups help to provide a voice to the coffee industry and aid in allowing the coffee community to flourish.
