The Amkeni coffee cooperatives was founded in 2001 and was the consequence of several smallholder farmers deciding to market their coffees together so that they could control the quality of the product and try and achieve a better market for their coffee. The group now has approximately 40 member farmers. The group runs a central washing station which uses a Penagos pulping machine. The group is located in the village of Mwika which is close to the larger village of Marangu in the Rombo district of the KilimRombo District, where coffee was first planted in the Kilimanjaro region back in 1898 by Catholic missionaries. The tribal people from this region are called Chaggas and they are well renowned for being good businessmen. Now, they are applying that to be serious about their coffee.
