Uganda Rwenzori Bugoye : Whole Bean Coffee


Tasting notes Blackberry, Currant, Plum, Baking Spices

Process Natural

Region Bugoye, Kasese

Altitude 1300-1900

The Bugoye community resides north of Kasese, living and farming throughout altitudes ranging from 1,300-1,900masl in western Uganda. The smallholders grow coffee as their main cash crop. Harvesting and selling cherries pays for essentials like sending children to school. The coffee trees that populate these smallholder garden plots are mostly SL28 and SL14 cultivars that were originally developed in Kenya.

The Rwenzori mountain range (aka - Mountains of the Moon), in Western Uganda is an up-and-coming region offering consistently high-quality Ugandan green coffee beans. Genuine Origin’s sourcing partner on the ground here established receiving stations throughout the mountain range. The receiving stations are generally closer to farming areas, making it easier for farmers to deliver ripe red cherries. From the receiving stations, cherries are transported to a centralized wet mill, where processing is carried out under careful supervision and quality control.
