24. Kahawa 1893 Founder Margaret Nyamumbo on Empowering Women and Building a Pan-African Coffee Brand

Thanks for tuning into episode 24 of Dear Diaspora! For today’s episode, I had a lovely conversation with Margaret, founder of Kahawa 1893! 

Margaret is a third-generation coffee farmer from Kenya. Inspired by the work of women in coffee, she created a unique business model to share delicious coffee with the world and to empower women producers in Africa. 

Kahawa 1893 removesthe middleman and works directly with farmers, and commits 25% of their profits to provide access to credit for women—giving them the ability participate in trade and empower themselves financially.

You can also support the women directly by sending a tip

During the episode, Margaret walks us through:

  • Her upbringing on a coffee farm in Western Kenya 
  • How she found a mentor to help her navigate the coffee industry in the early days of Kahawa 1893
  • How she’s taking Fair Trade to the next level by providing a way to tip coffee producers using Blockchain technology 
  • Her mission to build a Pan African coffee brand we can all be proud of
  • What excites her about Africa’s future

Tune in to hear more!
