The 1st Uganda national coffee festival and exhibition is here to promote YOUTH and COFFEE innovations through facilitating increased exposure to opportunities and networking for increased job creation in the coffee value chain. The aim is to foster promotion and building of strategic business partnerships and relationships for the youth through networking and collaboration in the value chain.
A number of youth that are already involved in the coffee value chain and are already making money in the coffee value chain will have opportunity to showcase the different innovations they have created such as coffee liquor, coffee ice cream and they will be able to share information to fellow other youth on they made.
NUCAFE will feature its unique speciality coffees at the event originating from the five coffee growing regions of Uganda. A large diversity of coffee players will demonstrate a multiplicity of innovations with latest brewing machinery, baristing and offering coffee for tasting.
This event will play a key role in creating awareness about the wonderful healthy attributes of the intrinstic coffee aroma through provision of excellent information from exhibitors and value chain players. This critical information will be available in form of print literature, such as fliers and brochures.
The coffee festival gives an opportunity to players in the value chain to have a number of innovations to exhibit, share experience and learn from each other. The event will attract a diversity of players such as financial institutions, coffee shops, insurance companies, input providers, farmers, universities, exporters, development partners and exporters.
Barista from various cafes, hotels and restaurants will be able to showcase their skills during the event, and provide information concerning which organizations trained them and how other youth can access such information
We are really proud of the history of coffee in Uganda and Africa at large. And as a result, we would like to once again embrace our history by imitating and reminding ourselves of the traditional African coffee practices such as traditional coffee roasting, eating cured coffee packaged in banana fibres, coffee brotherhoods, among other practices.
