The African Fine Coffees Association (AFCA), a Hub grantee, recently trained 20 Tanzanian coffee producers and exporters on its protocols for the Taste of Harvest Portal. AFCA's Taste of Harvest Portal links African coffee sellers with buyers who are interested in "winning lots" of coffee at premium prices. Winning lots are determined by international industry standard grading criteria during regional cupping competitions. The Taste of Harvest Portal increases the visibility of winning African coffees to an international audience and provides a mechanism for sale to a wider range of buyers.
Through its grant to AFCA, the Hub is helping to increase awareness and better understanding of regional specialty coffees flavor profiles in the international market and improve African skills in international coffee trading. Increased awareness and access will leads to increased income for farmers through export.
