In the heart of Tanzania, about 900 km away from the capital city Dar es Salaam, lies the coffee farm Songwa Estates, where the coffee grinder manufacturer Mahlkonig, the coffee roaster manufacturer Probat and the espresso machine producer La Marzocco, are leasing their mutually administered farm section. Since 2007 the three companies have been inviting clients, employees and other members of the coffee industry to Songwa, to make unique personal experiences of growing, processing and the marketing of green coffee. Because understanding coffee and begins right here: at its origin. And while people discover the origin of coffee, they start building connections with the people growing it. Striving to improve their lives becomes a matter of course for everyone involved. The new “Hands for Songwa” donation project has been set up to fund water wells for the village people living close to the Songwa coffee farm.
