Bukyabo is a small county on the west side of Mount Elgon, the non-active volcano that shares borders with Uganda and Kenya. The nutrient, volcanic soil and the high altitude where the coffee trees are growing are a great starting point to develop the delicate flavours in this cup. Coffee cherries which are growing on high elevation, ripen slower due to a smaller resource of oxygen in the air. These cherries grow between 2000-2300 meter above sea level where slow ripening results in more complex flavours. "Wanna glow? Grow it slow!"
Nasaaga Specialty Coffee Foundation, under the wings of Charles Wetaka, empowers the producers of Bukyabo to grow great coffee. The foundation is all about social responsibility and investing in rural coffee producing communities. Nasaaga supports with training on organic agricultural farming, and also with loan schemes and saving plans, protecting water sources and providing school material for the children in the area.
Enough reason to bring this gem to our assortment and share the beautiful flavours of Ugandan coffee with you!
