We buy coffee that is 100% Traceable which is possible through our links with the farmers formed into different village co-operatives.
Each of the current 32 village co-operative’s is a fully constituted business entity, registered as a CBO (Community Based Organisation). They have between 30 to 100 farmers each and are spread over 9 different sub-counties across the length and breadth of the Rwenzori mountains ranges.
The price we pay has greatly contributed to the improvement of post-harvest ethics and overall quality of the coffee ensuring that all coffee produced is traceable to its source.
Traceability is a key attribute in the 21st Century global economy and ensuring quality and traceability guarantees premiums for farmers.
