Kalingwe is an area just to the south east of the Rwenzori mountains.It is on the Bushenyl escarpment which forms the eastern edge of the Western Rift Valley, and the altitude is in the range of 1600-1800 m.a.s.l. Our farmers typically each have about 2 acres of land and coffee is their main cash crop. The farmers carefully select ripe cherries which are then collected on a daily basis and transported across the rift valley to our new processing facilities at Kisinga. Here the cherries are floated and graded before sun-dried under our polytunnels to protect them from rain. Our team turn the cherries several times each day to ensure even drying whilst allowing the cherries to mature and develop their full rish flavours. This takes about 10 days after which the cherries are hulled on site and again carefully sorted before being taken to Kampala ready for export.

Reliable choice

Still keep coming back to this one. Really great coffee with a great balance of sweetness and acidity.

I find this coffee very versatile. My two main drinks at home are a frothed milk drink with the 'espresso' component just an extra strong short brew in my aeropress, and a strong V60 pourover. This is among a list of coffees that work fantastically well in both.

Best coffee in the world?

This is really great coffee roasted gently to bring out the full complexity. Lovely fermentation flavours balanced with citrus, and no bitterness. Fantastic results with an Aeropress (as always, allow 2 minutes+ for steeping), gives a clean rich cup of black coffee.
