This coffee is grown in the remote Rwenzori Mountains in Western Uganda. Like many east African coffees, it is grown by several smallholder farmers each of whom may only have about 750 trees. Our Importer, Falcon Coffee, is working with Great Lakes Coffee (GLC), a green coffee sourcing, milling and exporting company, to bring this unique coffee to the UK.
GLC has been working in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo for three generations. The quality challenges they face are familiar: remote farms that make transport difficult, convoluted supply chains that affect traceability, and traditionally poor post-harvest processing. For the previous 5 years GLC has been working to support farmers by building community wet mills, creating access to finance, providing training, and paying for the certification of smallholder farmer groups.
In the cup it has all the qualities we look for in a high quality natural processed coffee: big ripe fruit flavours, complex aromas, and above all, sweetness. Ending with a smooth milk chocolate finish, this coffee will have you looking forward to the next sip.
