The presentation went well and thanks to Irish Aid for giving the opportunity to present my findings on Ugandan Coffee waste management from coffee processors. It was an exciting experience to present to them.

With my colleague with we had an opportunity for cupping in one of the biggest coffee processers company in Uganda. it was an amazing experience. field visits are amazing.
This week I am working on mapping out the coffee bean processing pathways, together with the coffee team. I am looking forward on getting it done, so that I begin with drafting my questionnaire and field visitations. June/July I will spend much of my time in the field collecting data.
however working with IITA coffee team is startling, I am learning a lot from them.
Hello my beautiful readers
Today It was amazing at work, I was presenting my research proposal to whole group of pundits in the field of coffee production systems. The presentation went well and people advised accordingly. however I look forward to collecting my data in the few coming weeks. I really cannot wait to go to the Ugandan coffee plantations, and interact with farmers.
Allow me to share with you the beauty of Kampala, this is where International Institute of Tropical Agriculture offices are based.
The projections show that from 2013 up to 2050 the suitable areas for growing coffee will be limited in Uganda, not so cool right, especially because coffee is one the major export commodity in Uganda.
It is so amazing to see that some farmers are practicing intercropping, because not only environmental benefits this method has but also, economic benefits for the farmer, as it boots their cash flow.
