For the last two years we have worked with Great Lakes Coffee to supply coffee for our blends. It was when we started this relationship that we found out about their Red Cherry selection project.

The Rwenzori Mountains provide exceptional terroir for high quality coffee, but the sheer remoteness, convoluted supply chain structure, and traditionally poor post-harvest processes have combined to ensure that the quality potential of these coffees is historically seldom achieved. Great Lakes Coffee has been working tirelessly over the past few years to produce in commercially viable volumes a true Specialty Natural from Western Uganda. This is it!
