Situated at the feet of the tremendous Rwenzori mountains, just north of Lake George, the region around Kasese has excellent conditions for speciality coffee production with some of the highest altitudes in Uganda.
This bright and aromatic Ugandan coffee is grown by a small collection of farmers who belong to the Bukonzo Organic Farmers Co-operative Union. The Co-op was established in 2009 to increase the prices gained by farmers for their coffee production.
The Kasese region of south-west Uganda has historically been made up of home processed and natural coffees of lower commercial qualities. Recognising the excellent growing conditions and the potential for outstanding quality coffee, Bukonzo invested in 36 local micro washing stations designed to process high quality fully washed coffees, as well as securing organic certification for their farmers. This approach has allowed a substantial increase in premiums reaching the farmers in what is one of the most impoverished parts of the country.
Bukonzo places a large emphasis on environmental sustainability, using organic fertilisers from local livestock and intercropping with bananas, beans, fruit trees, coco-yams, vanilla, passionfruit and mango trees.
With its delicious acidity and fruity sweetness this organic coffee is perfect for the Bright & Aromatic taste profile. Brew it with a pour-over method, such as V60 or Chemex, to really bring out the delicate notes and fruity flavours in your cup of coffee.
Your coffee will arrive within 3-5 days after placing the order.
