About The Mt. Meru Coffee Project

In 1999, a coffee farmer living on the slopes of Mount Meru in Tanzania asked a visiting Milwaukee pastor the simple question; “We grow coffee; you drink coffee; would you buy your coffee from us?” With an answer of “Yes”, the Mt. Meru Coffee Project was born.

The Project enables the small coffee farmers and the people of the Meru region to improve their standard of living and escape a cycle of poverty.

The Project provides small farmers with a fair price for their premium coffee. A fair price provides an increase in farm income, allowing the farmers to support their families with dignity.

The Project has imported, roasted, packaged and distributed an average of 8 to 12 tons of coffee per year. Importing over 186 tons of coffee through 2018, the Project has enabled farm families to have funds available to send children to school, access and pay for health care, and to support local farm villages, markets, and merchants.

Purchasing and drinking Mt. Meru Premium Tanzanian Coffee is the single most important way in which individuals, congregations and businesses can support thousands of family coffee farmers in Tanzania.
