Uganda is an East African country, close to and bordering some of the best coffee producing countries on the planet. But still, Uganda isn’t on the general specialty coffee radar. Instead, Kenya, Rwanda, and Ethiopia get all the spotlight and fame.
However, the fact is that Uganda has all the right elements to produce coffee of the highest qualities. It literally sits on the equator, has mountain ranges with great altitudes and amazingly fertile soils. On top of that farmers in the country are already cultivating varieties of coffee that we know to produce some of the best cups.
Therefore we see Uganda as a coffee country with tremendous potential. Where, by increasing the knowledge in how to manage farms and making sure picking of coffee cherries and processing of it improves, we can raise the level of quality.
