Ibanda Rwenzori Uganda

£5.75£16.00

Arabica Coffee has been grown in the Rwenzori region for as long as anyone can remember, and the conditions of high rainfall, altitude from 1300 to over 200 masl and volcanic soils are perfect for the production of high quality speciality coffee.

Ibanda is a town in the northern part of Kasese District situated in one of the many valleys of the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains. Agri Evolve* established a buying centre here for the farmers of Ibanda and the surrounding communities high up on the hillsides. These coffee farmers typically have between 1-2 acres of land and coffee is their main cash crop.

Once harvested, the cherries are brought to Ibanda, weighed and assessed for quality. Then the cherries are transported in trucks to Bugoye Coffee Station. This is where the cherries are floated and graded before being sun-dried in the polytunnels to protect them from rain. Then teams turn the cherries several times each day to ensure even drying whilst allowing the cherries to mature and develop their full rich flavours.

*Agri Evolve Ltd is an agricultural Social Enterprise working with farmers in Uganda with teh aim of improving yields, improving profits, and improving lives.
