Farm details

Description:

"Zukuka!' (tr. Wake Up!) is our ambition for the speciality coffee industry in Uganda; from crop to cup we endeavour to bring transformation through practical social enterprise.

We’re innovative, but we begin with what people have in their hands. Uganda has the conditions to produce fantastic coffee, and harnessing these we seek to breathe new life into a sleeping giant! Since 2016 we have been working to encourage excellence in coffee cultivation, processing and business practices on Mt Elgon, Uganda. We’ve learnt the hard way testing the concept, building trust with farmers and aligning similarly-minded partners across the value chain. In just our 4th season we’re directly impacting more than 7,000 people, including farmers, employees, and casual workers.

Because we’re passionate about people, it’s never just about coffee. As farmers receive better payments for their crops, they save their earnings in the savings groups we’ve established. As families improve their gardens we supply thousands of shade trees to improve their coffee, maintain soil structure and mitigate the effects of climate change.

As we export our coffee around the world, we keep some back to roast and market in-country – adding value, engaging new skills and creating more jobs.
But we’re just scratching the surface. We have a big vision. We aim to bring wealth and opportunity to some of the poorest communities on earth and impact the entire coffee industry in Uganda. We plan to see our coffee being enjoyed in-country; from our villages to hotels and tourist lodges, and in our network of cafes. With the right mix of people, skill, and funding we can impact this whole country and bring about generational change."
