Floral & wild

For centuries, the altitude and fertile soils of Uganda made for exceptional coffee farming and rare sandalwood notes, but until recently it was a dying practice.

Together with our partners, we started our long-term REVIVING ORIGINS program in 2018, joining with over 2,000 smallholder farmers to increase the quality and yield of their coffee. We work together to develop good farming practices that lead to great harvests and improved livelihoods.

ROASTING

This single-origin coffee is roasted utilizing the split-roast technique: The first split is roasted to a dark degree to enhance body, complexity and to balance with the wild notes that come from the natural (dry) process. The second split is roasted more lightly, reaching a medium-dark degree that allows us to explore the tropical fruit Aromatic profile.

ORIGIN

The Rwenzori Mountains - mountains of the moon - stretch for 120km along the western Uganda. The glaciers and snow-capped peaks provide steady water sources to complement the abundant rainfall that nourishes the fertile soils. High above the 1200m mark grows a rare, yet almost forgotten coffee. Its unique terroir is complemented by the shade and nutrients provided by banana trees, creating a true Arabica dreamland. However, the isolation and years of neglect were clear in the cup.

Het verhaal

Eeuwenlang zorgden de hoogte en de vruchtbare grond van het Rwenzori-gebergte in Oeganda voor uitzonderlijke koffieteelt, maar door kwaliteitsverschillen leverde de productie van koffie de boeren te weinig op. Samen met partners zoals Technoserve zijn we in 2018 begonnen met ons langlopende REVIVING ORIGINS-programma. Hierin werken we samen met meer dan 2000 kleine boeren om de kwaliteit en opbrengst van hun koffie te verhogen. We organiseren trainingen om de juiste landbouwtechnieken te ontwikkelen die leiden tot een kwalitatievere oogst en daardoor zorgen voor een beter levensonderhoud.
