Uganda Medad Kamukama harvests ripe coffee beans at his home garden in Uganda’s Sheema district. The beans turn from green to red when they are ready to harvest, which is usually from May to August. Kamukama gets 5,000 Ugandan shillings ($1.33) per kilogram (2.2 pounds) of clean and dried coffee, and his crop is then exported to the European Union.
