Wamama Kahawa Coffee Roasters is a social business that was started in Tanzania with the goal of offering freshly-roasted, old-fashioned Tanzanian coffee, while creating dignifying and enabling opportunities to unemployed Tanzanian women through fair wage and skills training in the simple but sophisticated art of hand-roasting coffee.

A wise man once said, “Wake up and smell the coffee.”

Coffee roasting is an art – You have to try your hand at it to know it. Here at WK, we always have the opportunity to get our hands dirty and try everything there is to the business. Right from hand-roasting our own batch of coffee beans, to sorting them, and finally weighing and bagging them to be sold.

Loving and serving our community

March 3, 2013

Last Saturday, 23 February, we organised our first community event of the year! In partnership with the Nuru Centre, the event is an initiative to reach out and engage our neighbours and our community, to introduce fun and meaningful activites for a good cause. All proceeds from the 2 workshops were donated to the Nuru Centre, a centre that employs physically disabled individuals to create a range of crafts, largely including paperbead jewellery items.

bibi veronica & sabina Nuru Centre paper beads 2
Somehow when we walked into the Nuru Centre  open field, there was a certain stillness in the air and it felt like the world had stopped and apart from the birds chipping,  all was quiet and peaceful. The presbyterian church rested neatly on the top of the hill as if god was opening his arms to us. Read more…

Meeting Bibi Veronica

Bibi Vero Bibi necklaces

Bibi Veronica walked into Wamama Kahawa one sweltering afternoon where we had scheduled our meeting for. She was decked in a flora v-neck top and plain simple skirt.
