Uganda Kwoti Natural
This was the first pilot project backed by the Research Council of Norway. The project concerned processing coffee in areas where water scarcity was imminent.
Developed with care and attention to a dedicated processing protocol with focus on fermentation and fruit flavor development. The high elevation of the farm where the trees give birth to coffee cherries resulted in very high density beans. The beans were small with a great future prospect for developing this experimental lot further.
The processing manager is Dison Kareng at Kwoti farm and the producer Mr. Alex. The farm is single origin owned by one farmer located at 2,265 MASL. This is the last coffee farm as one approaches the Mt. Elgon peak. What follows after this farm is a variety of trees and animal nature that has been gazetted as game reserve.
