Dear Readers hope 2019 is treating you well. 2019 is the year of greater accomplishments. I have few projects lined up to share with you.
coffee wet processing facility/mill.
Wet processing was found to be the most common method of processing coffee in Uganda, than dry processing method. During the study most primary processors indicated that their choice of wet processing is influenced by the consumer preferences. However, dry processors were mostly found in Central region of Uganda, and they did mention that they do prefer wet processed method as well , but it tend to be expensive for them as it required considerable amount of water and yet they don't have water, so they opt for dry processing.
So this week I am working on the final draft my thesis is really a hectic week. Hoping to submit this week for good comments & feedback.
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.
