This Uganda coffee is grown by a group of small farm holders on Mount Elgon within the Kapchorwa district on the eastern border of neighbouring Kenya. It is a high grown lot of washed, 100% shade canopy, mixed varietal arabica coffee.

The farmers share access to a wealth of growing and processing resources including four greenhouses, an arabica nursery for adolescent saplings, and a washing station with eco-pulping capabilities. Banana trees grow alongside the coffee contributing to the 100% natural shade canopy. Almost a thousand individual farmers contribute to the overall lot. Each manages their own 1.0 hectare farm and is responsible for the production of about 1,000 arabica trees. While the majority of the nation’s arabica is grown here on the slopes of Mt. Elgon, the Kibale Forest on the country’s western border supports a substantial growth of native robusta.
