As coffee is Uganda’s number one export, I was excited to learn more about the coffee process and its place in the market. Today we visited Savannah Commodities—an agriculture trading company the deals mostly with coffee and grains. We were able to look at the process from the cleaning and drying to the sorting of grades for both Arabica and Robusta coffee beans. They explained how they buy from 20,000+ farmers from all over Uganda and also how they sell to world-wide buyers including roaster and coffee shops. Savannah bases its purchasing and selling price platform off the New York market which is what most of the coffee industry does. Because the markets are ever-changing, it often leads to a gamble on whether to buy or sell or to stay idle in day-to-day transactions. In terms of sustainability, Savannah seemed to be on track, however is the coffee industry truly sustainable or what can be done to insure better sustainability?
