Hannah Tarawally started Salone Coffee when she sat her WASSCE exams but didn’t have the funds to further her education . An expat Development Worker from Europe sent me an email introducing Hannah’s Coffee Couriers. He came up with the business idea/concept , he was determined to sponsored an idea that would serve Hannah a lifetime-so she thought about doing coffee because she always had a passion for agriculture. At first she started off by buying imported coffee. She went to different offices to sell coffees.
