Hi Charles,


Regarding your question as to whether carbon neutrality is a possibility for your farmers.. well that depends on the carbon footprint of the producers and whether they meet the requirements for this PAS 2060 (as an example) and if the costs of implementing this effort is feasible for them. I'm not an expert on carbon neutrality but perhaps you can take a look at the organization who certified the Costa Rican coffee - Carbon Clear (website). The coffee producers are from Coopedota (website here).

Hei Charles,

 Let me hope that you're doing well and do hope that all is perfect. How is work treating you and the other issues of life. I thought about you yesterday and felt to drop in a line or two over the following issues


1. Recall we talked about this micro organism from Latino, i had contacts with this guy from Uganda representing Agro Eco and despite a call or two i have not received any feed back from them. Why cant we form a consortium and import the technology. Looks interesting considering the poor soil fertility we have around. Think over it and let me know.

I and a colleague of mine here in the office are experts in value chain development. We have been thinking of setting up a training initiative in Coffee Value chain development for coffee producer organization. The aim is develop a concrete analytical framework for coffee producer organization to understand their work in relationship to others and developing mechanisms to strengthen their lots in a value chain perspective. I don't know if am clear with my thinking. Based on your experiences can they pay for these type of training or do they need to have someone else pay for them?


let me hear from you
