Kalingwe is a small community, high in the foothills of the Rwenzoris. There are 3 groups of coffee farmers within this area with a total of 107 farmers.

We have been providing training and support for over 5 years and the farmers have significantly improved their agronomy and harvesting practices over that time. Coffee cherries are picked when fully ripe and transported down to the Agri Evolve Coffee Station in the valley. After careful grading the cherries are sun dried for about 3 weeks before hulling, grading, cleaning and bagging.

For the main season (Oct-Nov) they delivered over 10 tonnes of cherries which have been processed to produce this batch. We have also been active in Kalingwe with community projects, and we have formed 2 Village Savings and Loans Scheme (VSLA) groups and distributed 1376 tree seedlings to farmers during 2023.

This coffee has an SCA score of 85.5. ‘A touch of red berry on the finish with a nice hint of funk. Textured and syrupy on the body. Good balance
