More Information

Although Uganda is one of the leading producers of Robusta coffee, there is a steady growth of Arabica production, especially around the Mt Elgon area in the East of the country and the Rwenzori mountains in the west.

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.

Mahango is high in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains at 1800 masl.  Over 600 smallholder farmers bring their harvest to the Rwenzori coffee company's buying station from where they transport the cherries for sun drying and processing
