A Perfect Location

Arabica Coffee has been grown in the Rwenzori region of Uganda for as long as anyone can remember, and the conditions of high rainfall, altitude from 1300 to over 2000 masl, and rich volcanic soils are perfect for the production of top quality speciality arabica coffee. Practically all coffee is grown by smallholder farmers. The typical size of plot is between 1 and 2 acres. The main varietals are SL28 and SL14, but with a range of other older varietals which contribute to the rich complexity of the coffee produced.

In the past, coffee from this area has not had a good reputation. Poor harvesting and processing and long delays in processing and shipping resulted in an inconsistent, unreliable and low grade product.

Agri Evolve is committed to turning that around, and since 2016 we have seen a significant improvement. Motivating the farmers to harvest only red cherries by paying top price for the very best cherries is where it starts, and then careful processing and adhering to the highest standards, together with training and support for the farmers results in a high quality product. Rwenzori coffee is typically bright, fruity, clean and complex which regularly scores 84 and above. We select the very best from each harvest to bring to the UK. Rwenzori coffee is traditionally processed as a Natural but we are also developing and encouraging the production of a high quality Fully Washed coffee

We supply our coffee to UK roasters under the Rwenzori Coffee Co trading name
