Virunga Arabica Coffee.jpg
The Virunga Range offers you Natural Arabica with notes of forest fruits with a syrupy mouthfeel almost jammy like. Very high sweetness from the cup with medium body and acidity.  This coffee performs very well in espresso, either on its own because of the high sweetness or in a blend.

Bunyonyi Arabica Coffee
And for caffeine lovers that love their strong, bold, and smooth taste, we offer a unique single origin, Highlands grown Robusta, UGANDA BOLD,  that is proving anything you thought you knew about robusta has gone out the door.
The Lake Bunyonyi Naturals coffee has hints of baker's chocolate and sweet spice, sugar cane and tropical fruit in the flavor, dried mango and a rustic spice in the aftertaste, well-rounded body coffee, 
Master roaster in Ireland testimonial: 
"I have never cupped anything like this when it comes to Robusta. There was no rubbery notes or unpleasant bitterness. Body was heavy with a very high sweetness almost cacao like. Cup was also very floral which shows attention and care during harvest and processing. Plan to enter this into the Robusta Barista championships".  

What's more?!

Our coffee is ROASTED AT ORIGIN. 

This means that about 70% more profit stays with our farmers, compared to the usual coffee business model! 

Most people assume that getting their coffee roasted at their fave local roaster gives them the freshest coffee...

...While that is true especially compared to buying off the shelf at supermarkets, the green bean that roasters use usually travels from the origin by sea and takes 2 to 3 months to get to destinations in the US before it is sold to rosters. Add in the processing time from harvest (another month) and that fresh coffee is already at least 4 months old!

 

Now for the good part - as direct grower groups, our coffee is fresh-picked and processed to green bean within the month. We then roast it directly at our facility, allow a couple of days rest, and then airfreight the coffee to our global social enterprise partnering distributors. 

We only roast in small batches and ship out every 2 weeks,

giving you the freshest coffee possible. 

Choosing to buy and drink coffee that cares for our farmers and treats them right, a coffee that cares and aligns with conservation, you become part of powerful and sustainable changes.
