Recap of challenge and findings

  • Relationship between price farmers receive and their productivity/output
  • Farmer investment in productivity is the critical factor
  • Proportion of fully washed coffee decreasing 14-15’
  • Farmers seek fully washed channel to save labor and time
  • Low prices and oversupply are the main barrier for farmers selling in the fully washed channel
  • Farmers elsewhere in East Africa receive higher cherry prices and most have growing production.
