Uganda MT. Elgon-Kapchorwa

Regular price $ 19.99

Story

Mt. Elgon is an extinct volcano spread across the border of Uganda and Kenya, though its highest point, called Wagagai, is on the Uganda side.

Kyagalanyi, our sister company in Uganda, owns and runs the Kapchorwa wet mill, on the western side of Mt. Elgon. Producers here have traditionally sold in parchment, but by accepting cherry at the wet mill, the team has gained greater control over outcomes. Its careful separation of lots and its acceptance of only harvests that are 95 percent red cherry has dramatically improved the quality of its coffees—which financially benefits all parties.
