AFCA organised for the first time, a coffee safari to the Rift valley region in Kenya and the Mt. Elgon region in both Kenya and Uganda. Six members from Angola, Brazil, Taiwan and USA participated in the safari that was scheduled for 12th – 17th November 2018.
The objective of the safari was to expose the buyers to a different coffee growing region, allowing them to interact and nurture relationships with the coffee at their birthplace.
The tour started with the Kenyan coffee safari to Fort Ternan, Kericho County in the Rift Valley region. Here, the tour was to wet and dry mills. The wet mills visited were Boma and Kabng’etuny Farmers’ Cooperative Societies (FCS). Both are affiliate societies of the Kipkelion District Coffee Union.
