Description

This is a great example of a community processed natural coffee. It's comprised by over 500 farmers who process their own coffee and sell direct to the washing station. The group take special care when selecting and sorting the cherries.

Typical farmers' plot sizes will range from one to three acres and are located across the hillsides of the luscious Rwenzori mountains. This coffee is often the primary income for many families living in the Rwenzoris. The Natural process has always been the commonly practiced method for producing coffee in the region, and a recurring sight as you travel through the mountains is seeing farmers drying their harvests on tarpaulins out the front of their homes. Once processed, the coffee is then sourced by Agri Evolve and sorted into appropriate lots organised by location and date.

Despite encouragement to sell coffee as cherries, there is still a demand driven by farmers to produce traditional natural processed coffee as it is deep- rooted in the history of the Rwenzori people. Over many generations, they have developed and refined the optimum method of treating their coffee creating unique flavours from the Mountains of the moon.

Producer Information

In 2016 Agri Evolve originally started as a collection point for both Dried Ugandan Arabica (DRUGAR) and cherries. The typical approach to processing coffee in the Rwenzori Mountains has been for farmers to process it themselves. Typically drying cherries on tarpaulin in the sun. Sourcing this DRUGAR was considerably easier in the beginning than trying to
purchase ripe cherries, it turns out old habits do die hard!

Following investment in processing equipment, demonstration farms and hiring experienced staff. The second-year harvest was a drastic improvement in terms of sourcing unprocessed ripe cherries.

After this first season, processing facilities improved considerably and equipment including; a washer separator, mechanical dryers, Hulling machine and green-houses were all introduced to the station.

The interest in Agri Evolve grew amongst the farming community as we were seen as a staple
reliable place to sell coffee, we consistently paid good prices and always paid on time, which, as basic as it is, made a huge difference for farmers.
