    The Profile

    The Profile

    Nyabirongo is a well-balanced, versatile regional lot from Uganda. There are over 2700 farmers from the area who bring their ripe cherries to the coffee station for processing. Regular turning of the cherries on raised beds enable them to dry slowly and for the full flavours to be absorbed into the coffee beans.

    It serves well both black and white, with gorgeous notes of sweet toffee and blood oranges. It's smooth with a well rounded citric acidity and stone fruit richness, the perfect brew for a crisp Spring morning.

    The Producers

    The Producers

    Nyabirongo is a small community where the Agri Evolve Coffee Station is to be found just outside the town of Kisinga. Many of the farmers live in the lower areas at 1300masl, and others live higher in the foothills up to 1600masl and above.

    Agri Evolve work closely with farmers in Uganda to achieve higher yields, better quality, and effective marketing in order to improve their productivity, income and profitability. We think this coffee is a great example of the growing reputation Uganda has for speciality grade coffee.
