On May 16, 2018 a group met at the Summit Education headquarters near Corporant, Haiti to discuss the process by which Zamni Kafe’ farmers can begin selling their next crop of coffee cherries to the Singing Rooster Coffee Company (SR) in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, https://singingrooster.org. The group discussed details concerning production, logistics, different varieties, demand and supply, as well as sharing the challenges and rewards of the work. There was a good vibe brewed amongst the newly formed friends. Sewanee’s campus will begin supplying SR coffee in its dining hall and coffee shop soon.
