Our Great Taste Award winning direct trade beans from the slopes of the Rwenzori mountains in Uganda find their way to our roastery through the careful stewardship of Martin from the Rwenzori Coffee Company.

We’ve been working with Martin from the outset to give a route to market for the exceptional coffee grown in the region that is now starting to become more sustainable. Older heritage varietals of coffee are grown on often remote areas of the mountainous landscape by small farming cooperatives. Martin has been working hard with the farmers to develop more sustainable commercial coffee farming and has driven the investment in better growing practices, harvesting protocols and processing methods to produce one of the best coffees we’ve ever tasted.

The wild, high altitude growing climate and natural processing method of the beans is evident in the fruit explosion they offer in the cup. Roasting this bean to a ‘fast and light’ profile produces a crisp strawberry acidity moving through a creamy body to a sweet caramel finish. We have loved every minute of seeing this coffee progress year on year and can’t wait to be part of the regions fantastic coffee growing future.
