KCFCS or Kibinge Coffee Farmers Co-operative Society is a coffee farmers organisation located 150 km south-west of Uganda’s capital Kampala, in Bukomansimbi District, Kibinge sub-county. The special geographic position of Kibinge, just below the equator, allows coffee to be harvested twice a year. This region ordinarily produces some of the finest Robusta coffee in the world, with hard beans, which give an even roast and a mild, soft, sweet and neutral taste. The coffee is grown at 1250m above sea level and hand picked from May until September and then again from October until January.
KCU or Kagera Cooperative Union is a voluntary association of 124 Primary Cooperative Societies representing over 60,000 small farmers who mostly grow Robusta and are based in the Kagera region. Coffee here is grown at 800m – 1500m above seal level and is hand picked between May and August.
NB. Climate change, harvests, politics, economics and many other factors demand that from time to time we need to also source coffee from other Fairtrade certified co-operatives in these countries.
