You may have seen this one before: This delicious fruity coffee has been one of our staple favourites for a few years now. It works great as a filter and espresso, providing the punch in our espresso blend, so we're always happy when this time of year comes around, bringing a fresh new crop.

Kiraro is a community at the Southern end of the Rwenzori Mountains in the far West of Uganda, close to the border with D.R Congo. It is a densely populated area with many smallholder farmers growing food for their families. Coffee is the main cash crop and farmers depend on their coffee to earn the money to pay for school fees.

Our friends at Agri Evolve work closely with over 200 farmers in this area, and during the harvest season they collect freshly harvested cherries from them on a daily basis. The cherries are transported to Nyabirongo where they are carefully processed and monitored until ready for hulling and export. Farmers are encouraged to use GAP - Good Agricultural Practices, to improve both the quality and quantity of the coffee grown. Often very old coffee trees need to be stumpedto promote fresh young growth which will lead to better yields.

From Farmer to Roaster

Agri Evolve is a wholesale coffee bean supplier importing speciality coffee from farmers in the Rwenzori region of Uganda to coffee roasters in the UK and Europe.

Agri Evolve works with farmers in Uganda, improving yields, increasing income and raising the quality of life for farmers, their families and their communities through various initiatives.

For the past 6 years, they have worked with the farmers to improve their production of speciality arabica coffee which is now regarded as one of the very best in the whole of East Africa.
