This month's story of the Spirit at work comes to us from Tanzania and from the Greater Milwaukee Synod of the ELCA.
Established in 1999, the Project enables the small coffee farmers living on the slopes of Mount Meru in Tanzania to have funds available to send their children to school, access and pay for health care, and support local farm villages, markets, and merchants.
Coffee grown and harvested in Tanzania is shipped to Imperial Coffee Roasters in Waukesha who roast it for us to enjoy. It is sold by ELCA congregations and other outlets throughout the US.
Purchasing and drinking Mt. Meru Premium Tanzanian Coffee can support thousands of fair-trade family coffee farmers in Tanzania. We sell it here at Spirit Alive! and use it for weekly coffee service at St. Paul's and Spirit Alive! as well.
This month, we report that staff at Mt. Meru have completed storage buildings to protect more harvested coffee beans prior to shipment, and have completed a water well to ensure a consistent water supply improving the pulping and fermentation. Meet, in photos, Nia and Mlimani, showing off their work.
