The Incuti producer group is from Kayanza regio, located near a high-altitute rainforest. Typical for African coffee-smallholders, farmers grow other cash crops like cassava, banana and beans along with the coffee cherries. The local leader of Incuti group reached out to JNP Coffee 3 years ago to start a new partnership, and now they are one of the newest member of the family.
JNP has established the “Dushime” program for their producer group partners which provides quality consulting, lot selection, marketing to JNP’s buyer community, and end-of-year premiums. Incuti has joined JNP family through Dushime program. Since then, the producer group has increased their living income by improving their green coffee quality and expanding their access to different markets.
