Ibanda is a village in the northern part of Kasese District and is in one of the many valleys in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains. Ripe, red coffee cherries are harvested daily during the harvest season and taken to Ibanda. The cherries are weighed, assessed for quality and the farmers are paid in cash.
Ugandan coffees are in the middle of a surge in popularity at the moment, and it's easy to see why. Ibanda has the hallmarks of a great African natural – with tangy raspberry notes and a boozy finish, it's up there with the best of them.
Notes from the team:We're really lucky to be able to have such a great relationship with Agri Evolve. From our first coffee sourced from the Rwenzori Mountains (Nyabubare). Agri Evolve, the parent company of the Rwenzori Coffee Co. is dedicated to training farmers in the latest developments in agronomy. The team behind the company and the farmers who produce this crop believe that they can help elevate the status of Ugandan coffee to a more well-regarded platform within the specialty industry.
