About the Coffee & Farmer:
In 2003, 28 farmers in Muhororo region decided to form a cooperative to increase coffee production and bolster their income. That initial group was composed of 22 women and 6 men. The district authorities granted them 30 hectares in the region and the group allocated plots to each member.

In 2004, the group became legally registered as Kopiguka cooperative. In 2012, they constructed a mini washing station to process coffee. The cooperative filled a market gap by collecting and processing coffee in the region, where there were no other washing stations.

In 2018, they began working with Tropic Coffee, who now manage and operate the station. The cooperative remains in charge of the farm operations on the land granted to them by the district. Their collaboration is proving profitable and helping members pay for their health insurance, school fees and more.
