Smart Globe International, LLC was founded by the husband and wife team of Patrick and Tamara Tcheunou. The mission of the company is to sustainably farm Arabica coffee and cacao in Cameroon, Patrick’s native country. In addition, the company values placing women throughout the team, from farmer to engineer, in such a way that supports the advancement of women. The company allows flexible schedules and pays fair wages so that employees may care for their families, as well as work. Another manner in which the company will make a social impact in Cameroon is by contributing to the education of workers’ children. This could take place by offering scholarships, improving classroom conditions, and organizing after-school programs in the villages where the farms exist.
The purpose of this blog is to share about our great loves, our farm crops of coffee and cacao, so others may learn and appreciate the intricacies of growing, producing, and consuming these treasured goods. Hopefully, the reader will gain knowledge and enjoy some humor, too, while following this blog. Thank you for supporting this venture; your feedback is most welcome.
