Uganda Kihunga United Fair Trade Organic

Profile

Located in Western Uganda, the Bukonzo Joint Cooperative is beginning to attract new interest to this coffee growing region. While working diligently to improve the quality of their coffee, the co-op members have been investing in their land and social programs.

This lot is produced by 5,500 smallholder farmers who live near the Kihunga United micro washing station, where this coffee was processed. The growers refer to this coffee as “Owemba” which translates to “best quality” and is the name they use for the highest quality lots produced by the cooperative.

The majority of Bukonzo Joint producers are women. In addition to a focus on good environmental stewardship, the co-op has developed programs that support concerns important to women and their families. The cooperative offers programs on maternity health, women’s justice issues and empowerment classes, as well as sustainable agriculture training. Through their participation in the cooperative, the women farmers have an opportunity to achieve greater equality and influence over household income.

Cupping Notes

Flavors of sandalwood and baking spices complimented by delicate hints of stone fruit.
