This coffee is sold out!
This coffee was deliciously fragrant like a bouquet of lemongrass -- we're sad to see it go! This label was fun to work on! Current events were terrible as usual during the summer of 2020, and I wanted to send another positive message: "Keep your head up! Look forward to the future!" Was this little guy able to give you some tiny boost? Around this time, we also transitioned our packaging from a bag to a box. Hoping to get a write-up about that soon!

Here's an excerpt of the info sheet from the importer:
"ABOUT THE COFFEE Our Rwenzori Natural was produced at Kisinga Washing Station which started operations in 2016. This lot was hand-picked by the Bukonzo Farmers Group in the Kasese District. Later the coffee was dried on raised African beds in poly tunnels.
ABOUT THE BUKONZO FARMERS The Bukonzo Farmers Group is comprised of people who are members of the Bakonzo tribe. Farms tend to be small averaging only about 2 hectares. The work on these farms is generally done by hand. Farmers work together to process and market their coffee, an approach known as “share farming”. Working as a united group has helped to improve processing and increase quality control.
ABOUT RWENZORI The Rwenzori Mountain Range (famously known as the Mountains of the Moon) stretch 120km along Western Uganda bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. The magnificent snow-capped peaks and the glaciers produce many rivers. The high altitude, fertile soils and plentiful rainfall provide perfect conditions for growing Arabica. Here, coffee is grown under the shade of banana trees. Farmers also produce cassava, maize, beans and groundnuts for local consumption and additional income."
