Coffee has been grown by farmers in the Rwenzori region for many years. The altitude, soil, and climate are all very suitable for the production of high quality arabica coffee. There are many stages involved in getting the coffee beans from the bush to the final consumer and in the past difficulties at various stages have affected the quality of the coffee produced.
Agri Evolve have teamed up with Kyagalanyi Coffee Limited, a coffee exporter for over 20 years experience. Together we are overcoming the issues faced. Providing a transparent market, with good prices and prompt payment is a key factor. Providing training and establishing demonstration plots is having a positive impact on the ability of farmers to increase the yield and quality of their crops. Investment in the processing facilities in 2017 has improved the capacity to process the red cherries from the farmers and produce a coffee of a very high quality.
