Our second year working within Uganda

An organic, high elevation lot that pushes flavor and innovation

For more than a decade, our exporting partner has worked in Uganda as a non-profit with the community of Mt. Elgon coffee farmers to improve their farms and overall quality of life. Insight from that program led to creating an exporting company that would work alongside the farmers to create a more stable and sustainable supply chain. Mountain Harvest was established in 2017, not only as a buyer of the Mt. Elgon coffee but as a partner. They strive to optimize farms, enhance quality, and pay higher, more stable prices based on a living wage model.

Mountain Harvest works with around 850 farmers in eight different communities on the slope of Mt. Elgon. They are challenging the norms of Ugandan coffee production through a focus on specialty coffee and research and development. In just four short years, the team has provided training to farmers on agricultural models based on biodiversity (for the viability of the land and crops for supplemental income), organic fertilizers, advancing post-harvest processing techniques, and implementing data systems that enable full transparency and traceability.

We began working with the coffee in the 2018/19 season, first to provide feedback and market knowledge. In one year, their organization and coffee quality advanced greatly, and as a result, this is our second year purchasing from Mountain Harvest. This is the first of two lots we selected from an impressive catalog of offerings. We are excited about what Uganda has to offer, the dedication of the growers, and the inspirational work Mountain Harvest has achieved. This coffee is medium-bodied and has notes of golden raisin, cacao, and honey. Dial-in by starting with a 1:16 brew ratio, filtered water at 206-208℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.
