WHY?

More than 1000 passionate farmers contribute to this regular seasonal harvest. Typical farmers' plot sizes will range from one to three acres and are located across the hillsides of the luscious Rwenzori mountains. This coffee is regularly the primary income for many of the families of the Rwenzoris.

The Natural process has always been the commonly practiced method for producing coffee in the Rwenzoris.

A recurring sight as you travel through the mountains is seeing farmers drying their harvests on tarpaulins out the front of their homes. Once processed the coffee is then sourced by Agri Evolve and sorted into appropriate lots organised by location and date.

Despite encouragement to sell coffee as cherries, there is still a demand driven by farmers to produce traditional natural processed coffee as it is deep-rooted in the history of the Rwenzori people. Over many generations, they have developed and refined the optimum method of treating their coffee creating unique flavours from the Mountains of the moon.

We roast all of our coffee beans in small batches - we want to make sure you get the best beans for your brew. This means we're roasting Monday to Friday so your caffeine delivery will contain coffee that is freshly roasted and ready to enjoy!
