This fully washed Mt Elgon coffee comes to us from Kyagalanyi Coffee Ltd, our sister company in Uganda. The lot drew coffee from Kyagalanyi's five Mt Elgon region mills: Kapchorwa, Buzibiti, Manafwa, Gibuzale and Busulani, and number of smallholder Farmer Groups.

About the Region
Uganda is on the equator and has bi-modal rainfall which keeps the mountain lush and green all year round. Uganda also has a smaller fly crop after the main harvest season.

Mt Elgon is an extinct volcano on the south eastern side of Uganda bordering Kenya. The mountain is prone to high humidity and strong sun with high dry season temperatures. Mt Elgon is Uganda's most developed Arabica growing area and coffee is its main crop. The Bugisu people have grown coffee in the area for generations.

Kyagalanyi Coffee Ltd
Kyagalanyi Coffee Ltd has a thriving sustainability program which practices farming as a business. Among other things they developed Coffee Youth Teams through which young people are trained as coffee farmer consultants. Students are taught to manage demonstration plots and Volcafe model farms. The model farms allow area farmers to learn best practices and see what they can achieve via working with the youth teams, using tools such as stumping, intercrop growing and pruning trees.
