The Story

After learning about systems to protect water in the coffee process, this group went through practical workshops on community resource management. As part of this, we used plastic tanks and pipes to install a filtering system for the waste water resulting from coffee washing.

Coffee waste water negatively impact soils, microorganisms, vegetation and bodies of water, if no work is done prior to their final disposal.
