Tastify Profile


COFFEE SCORE: 84


This coffee's unique and balanced profile evokes the diverse landscapes of the region where it's produced. From the mighty snow-capped Rwenzori mountains to the lush savannah plains, this coffee can be perfect as a blend component or enjoyed as a delicious single-origin coffee! 

Cultivation

The remarkable quality of this coffee is a direct result of high altitudes and the fertile soil of the regions in which it is grown

Coffee is usually the primary cash crop for farmers, but most also intercrop their trees alongside plantains, bananas and fruit. This intercropped produce makes up a substantial part of the family’s diet for the year.

Harvest & Post-Harvest

Farmers selectively handpick ripe cherry and deliver it to washing stations or supply chain agents near them. Cherry is carefully sorted at intake where under- and over-ripes, along with any foreign matter, are removed.  In order to offer fair prices, farmers are paid the same for their quality cherry regardless of where they bring their cherries.

Quality assurance begins as soon as farmers deliver their cherry. All cherry is floated in small buckets as a first step to check quality. Cherries are then wet processed under constant supervision. Pulping, fermentation, washing, grading through channels and a final soaking are all closely monitored.

Wet parchment is sorted and any damaged beans that remain are removed. Then, parchment is moved to raised beds where it is turned regularly to ensure even drying. Parchment is covered at the hottest part of the day and overnight to prevent cracking and/or condensation. Workers also regularly inspect drying parchment and remove any damaged beans. Table are marked with tags to ensure traceability.
