About the producer

The Rwenzoris are known as the ‘Mountains of the moon’. These mountains stretch out for 120 KM along the western Uganda border with the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Bakonxo Tribe are proud and tough people who farm the foothills of the Rwenzori mountains, this work has been carried out for over 15 generations. The farmers harvest their coffee by hand, carefully selecting the ripe cherries. The cherries are then pre-sorted before being floated in a tank of water. The cherries which float are removed, leaving only the best cherries. These cherries are then sun-dried on raised tables inside purpose-built poly-tunnels. Farmers carefully turn the cherries throughout the day ensuring uniform drying. Once dried to the required moisture content, the coffee is stored and processed in a wet mill in Kisinga Town. After processing, the coffee beans they then undergo a final removing of any black beans or defects.

The coffee is then bagged and transported to a new dry mill in Namanve on the outskirts of Kampala. Here it is prepared for export through Mombasa. Many farmers choose to sell the fresh cherries after they have been sorted and floated, often with the assistance of the field team based out of Kisinga. This enables farmers to access quick payment for coffee and takes away the risk of processing coffee at their farm, many of whom are not well equipped to dry coffee. The cherries are delivered to the wet mill in Kisinga Town where a team of trained workers are able to carry out the whole process to a high standard.
