I am basically replacing Kara (who posted below) on the same project. I have read some interesting things about Sustainable Harvest and would love to talk you about the company and the coffee scene in Moshi. Thanks!
hi stephen; I noticed you are/ were doing some work in Tanz. I've just arrived here in Moshi and will be helping a coffee co-op open up their own cafe. Any tips on suppliers in Tanz/ East Africa? Looking for all the essentials: portafilters, steaming pitchers, etc. Thanks for your help!!
