Solidarity Roast

Sold out.

*** SOLIDARITY IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT ***

On the slopes of Uganda's Rwenzori Mountains, on the western border with the Congo's Kivu region, you will find 1,200 members of the Bakonzu tribe who have come together to form Bukonzo Organics (BOCU). These are amongst Kasese's first farmers to produce Fair-Trade Organic Certified coffees. While the region once had a rich history in producing Natural Arabicas, farmers had to leave their homes in the 1990s, returning to find their coffee trees uprooted.

Now the farmers of Bukonzo Organics are back, and organized. They have created 12 micro-washing stations to help with quality control and lot separation. They achieved their Fair Trade and Organic certifications after three years of work on their governance, on their processing, and on their farms.
