The Rwenzori’s are famously known as the ‘Mountains of the Moon’. They stretch for over 120km along the Western Uganda region and are renowned for their exceptional Naturals. 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 the wet mill in Kisinga Town. After processing, the coffee beans then undergo a final removing any black beans or defects from the coffee.

 

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.

 

Our supplier, Omwani Coffee Co, work directly with small-holder farmers and processors aiming to make each bean fully traceable.

 

All orders come with free shipping as standard.
