Kaweri Coffee Plantation Ltd. occupies a total area of 2,512 ha, of which 1,626 ha are planted with Robusta coffee and 36 ha with woodlots. About 25% is comprised of natural, indigenous highland rainforest. The remaining area consists of roads, housing, processing equipment and natural papyrus swamps.
Kaweri is managed by a team of Ugandan, Zimbabwean and Kenyan professionals, all with a long track record in coffee farm operation.
The farm is divided into four main sections of roughly 400 ha each, called Nonve, Kyamutuma, Kitagweta and Luwunga. Each section is subdivided into divisions, each consisting of 80 – 100 ha coffee and managed by a divisional supervisor.
Each section or even the smaller divisions work with “own” groups of employees and the supervisors know them personally, by name. These employees either live in one of the section quarters or commute on a daily basis from their village to the farm and back after work. Some casual workers prefer staying in farm hostels, where they are provided with dry shelter as well as decent washroom facilities.
There are four section quarters for 200 permanent employees and four hostels for max. 230 casual workers each.
