When I decided to join coffee farming, I thought I it was a venture I would not benefit from but after I had my first harvest I decided to put it more effort by attending the training provided by NUCAFE training agricultural practices, ownership of coffee to ensure improved livelihoods.
In my fast start out in coffee business, I did not have a lot of interest in joining coffee farming because of the requirements were quite high and as a fresh graduate from Makerere University, with no income or money, I found farming quiet hard.

NUCAFE supports rural communities in the district of Mubende one of them being Naama community. It is located in the Central Region 0°25'00.0"N 31°59'00.0"E of Uganda characterized by natural fertile soils and endowed with good rains favorable for coffee production. It is an upcoming coffee producing region with most of the coffee bushes below the age of 10 years which gives them a good cup taste and physical characteristics.
