This coffee comes from the tribal lands in Rwenzori, Western Uganda from the region of Bugoye.
In the Rwenzori's as there has been little investment into the infrastructure, nearly all coffee has been processed at farmer level as a natural, dried on Tapalins / on the floor. When our coffee import partner started buying coffee, the first stage was to focus on cherry quality and to set up a buying programme which would enable Farmers to process cherry themselves. At the end of 2017, the community were asked to see if they were interested in a new processing method'. Omwani coffee handed out 30 hand pulpers into the community. The Farmers then had some training from well-established Farmers in the East (Mt Elgon typically known for it's washed coffees) who travelled over and spent a week learning/practising with hand pulpers. In 2018 they invested in a 2.5mt Pulper at the washing station and spent the majority of the main crop experimenting with fermentation times, drying techniques, learning how much mucilage to take off! Try the result from this incredible testing. We would love to know what you think.
