Kateshi coffee estate, as one of the first coffee estates in Zambia, was established in 1972 close to Kateshi village. Back then, its wet processing facilities represented the heart of coffee production in northern Zambia, being the central mill for all coffee produced in the region. Sustaina- bility is at the heart of the operations and they strive for excellent community relations and protection of natural resources. Almost 600 ha of the land is protected forest area with high conservation value. Money from the sale of the coffee grown is invested in daily access to safe drinking water to over 20,000 villagers and supports a medical clinic and 3 schools that provide over 1,500 students with primary and secondary education. Kateshi has been recognized for boldly challenging the gender stereotypes in Zambia, being the first and only coffee estate to employ women for traditionally male-dominated roles such as driving tractors and even larger equipment like road graders and bulldozers. A strong focus on gender equality makes this coffee directly contribute to the empower- ment of women – and this is not restricted to the farm; the new found sense of independence and pride also spills over into the neighbouring communities.
