What we stand for

Coffee and Tea production in East Africa is a smallholder activity:

400 000 households in Rwanda
600 000 households in Burundi
400 000 households in Tanzania
1 700 000 households in Uganda, etc.

These are the communities that need most attention to transform the local economies and boost economic activity. At Almacena Platform, we believe with the help of private individuals acting as investors, we can collectively help Rural Africa achieve a better and more sustainable future.

In the UN Framework of Sustainable Development Goals, we aim to address:

No poverty

Facilitar a los productores africanos y sus familias una financiación alternativa razonable de forma intuitiva y flexible.

Gender Equality

Promocionando activamente cooperativas Sólo-Mujeres y ofreciendo tasas de interés especiales para incentivar la incorporación profesional de la mujer al trabajo.

Decent Work & Economic Growth

Reduce Inequalities

Facilitando el acceso a los mercados de la UE y permitiendo una mayor retención de valor para los productores africanos mediante la concesión de financiación en mercados de destino y centros de exportación.

As a coffee roaster we are happy to work with Almacena, as they provide good service and we can pick up the coffees fast in the warehouse. The African commodities we roasted are not only of good quality, but also traceable in terms of shipping dates and information which our customers want to know.

General Manager SECASB, Burundi
I really want to thank Almacena, because this company does things that others do not. Firstly they give interesting prices for producers and secondly they buy in bulk, while others simply buy small micro-lots of 10-20 bags of specialty coffee. It is really an impeccable company.

GM, Salama Coffee
Salama coffee is too proud to have found a transparent, dependable and reliable pattern in Almacena. Almacena has exhibited all characteristics of a very professional marketing team that has provided our brand, European market access. Almacena has gone forward to take us to another level through the Almacena origin app. This brings the traceability component to our product that was completely missing. We are happy, excited and confident about the future with a transparent partner Almacena
