Kasto Myombe has been working with Tembo for 5 years, since the company was established. He was previously a coffee agent, selling his coffee in the Mbozi districton Mbeya Rural. In 2017, in partnership with Tembo, Kasto started to manage a centralised washing station to have better control of the quality and consistency of his production.
Tembo lent him a Penagos Ecopulper for the season, and thanks to this he managed to produce specialty coffee for the first time. In turn,being able to improve his production to include specialty coffees, it allows Kasto to recieve thebest possible prices for his coffee from Tembo.
The premium from this lot will help him to invest in his farm and toprovide for his wife and their 4 children. Heis also planning to extend hisbusiness next year and buy more cherries from local producers, to process at the washing station. He has already started to work with farmers in the area, and he hopes to create a strong producers group in time for the 2018 season.
