The program targets one of the most important hotspots for biodiversity in the region and one of the most politically contentious areas in Mozambique. Gorongosa Coffee works with local farmers and their families living in three remote communities. These communities all endorse a common vision of the integrated relationship between sustainable land use, community development, and conservation value. We are currently selling our coffee internationally.
