About Philly Fair Trade Uganda Bukonzo

* 1lb bag * On the western border with the Congo's Kivu region, you will find 1,200 members of the Bukonzo tribe who have come together to form Bukonzo Organics Cooperative Union (BOCU). BOCU is comprised of women-owned, small plot farmers at good altitude (harder, sweeter beans) between 3,900 and 5,900 feet in the Rwenzori Mountains. These are amongst Kasese's first farmers to produce Fair-Trade & Organic Certified coffees. Uganda is one of the smallest countries in Africa, but ranks second in the continent’s coffee production and seventh on the world stage. Yes, a country the size of Oregon produces more coffee than Kenya or Tanzania. Unlike Kenya or Tanzania, however, coffee estates or plantations are not common in Uganda, accounting for less than 7% of all coffee production. Uganda’s estimated 1.3 smallholder coffee farmers each own, on average, half a hectare of land. This is the first time Bukonzo's coffee has been shipped to the US, and we thank Crop to Cup for bringing it to us.
