More Information

We have once again teamed up with the Rwenzori Coffee Company, the trading name of Agri Evolve, a Social Enterprise / Profit for Purpose organisation, working with smallholder farmers in Uganda to improve quality and quantity of agricultural crops and bring about sustainable development through excellent business practice. Along with the Kyagalanyi Coffee Company, one of the longest established coffee exporting companies in Uganda, they are providing an open transparent market for local farmers. Farmers are being trained and encouraged to rejuvenate their established coffee trees, in addition to planting new ones. Harvesting and processing are being improved, and significant investment has been made to establish a modern factory in the town of Kisinga which is our base in this beautiful region of Rwenzori.

Kyondo is a sub county in the central part of the Rwenzoris. Agri Evolve has been working directly with the coffee farmers here for 5 years helping them to improve the quality and volume of their coffee production. . One of these buying centres is Kyambithi.

There are 1280 registered smallholder farmers in Kyondo sub county, with an average plot size of less than 1 acre. The land ranges from 1600 to 2000 masl and this high altitude produces large, sweet cherries which after careful processing at the Agri Evolve Wet Mill at Nyabirongo give rise to a typically fruity, well balanced natural coffee. The dried green coffee is graded, colour-sorted, de-stoned and packed ready for export to customers in the US, Europe and the UK.
