(Excerpt from the book 'The Greek community in Tanzania')
In the 1900s, a few Greeks settled in Moshi and Arusha, on the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and dealt with coffee farming. In the late 1930s, 134 out of a total of 405 coffee estates in the Kilimanjaro area were Greek. Actually, 80% of the total production was in the hands of the Greek farmers, who owned the largest estates. Some of these early settlers in the Kilimanjaro area were Michael Michalakis, Kostas Kalliambetsos, Kostas and Ioannis Papayiannis, Xenophon Tsiknos, Dimitris and Vassilis Bourloyiannis, Fotis Stathopoulos, Michael Plataniotis, Leonidas Christianakis, Tzouganatos, Michael Lamos, Evriviadis Panagiotakopoulos, George and Thanos Papadopoulos, Kostas Eleftheriou, Nasos Aslanis, Anthippi Papadopoulou, Pantelis Boukosis, Aphrodite Boukousi, Spyros Markantonatos, Ioannis Varveris, Alekos Orphanos, Lefteris Ioannidis, Pygmalion Karageorgellis, Despoina Karageorgelli, Paul and Christos Giarinakis, Hercules Koros, Androniki Gika, Nikos Monas, Antonis Zannetos and Gregory Emmanuel.
