Uganda Bududa UTZ-certified

from 16.00

Dark chocolate, cream, walnut. A great coffee, suitable for any coffee-making method, that will satisfy those looking for a full-bodied, low-acidity cup. Bududa coffee comes from the Kyagalani mill in the Bududa District of Mt. Elgon in the Eastern highlands of Uganda, on the border with Kenya. The Bududa Farmer Group consists of over 1,000 farmers organized into 43 UTZ certified farmer groups; the average farm size is just 2.3 ha. All Bududa coffee is hand-picked and processed on the day of harvest. After pulping with a hand-pulper, the coffee is fermented overnight in small basins. The next morning the coffee is washed and put on raised drying trays for drip drying for 2-3 days and then sun-dried on tarpaulins. According to Volcafe, an independent study in 2014 showed that Kyagalanyi farmers had 31% higher coffee yields and 64% more coffee income than non-supported farmers. By 2016/17, coffee yields had improved 59% and an average household earned an additional annual income of 1.8 million UGX ($530). Improving farmers’ wealth has helped more than 500 children go back to school. Washed SL-14 and SL-28 grown at 1300-1800 masl.
