About the growers: “Coffee is ritual; it is art and craft, taste and experience. But Mountain Harvest coffee is so much more. High on the slopes of Mount Elgon, Uganda, Mountain Harvest is working side-by-side with farmers to produce high-quality arabica coffee — coffee that also fuels a higher quality of life for farmers, their families and the soil beneath their feet.” - Mountain Harvest
Mount Elgon, an extinct volcano, is now a massive peak split nearly in two by the border of Uganda and Kenya. It’s slopes are ideally suited for the production of high-quality specialty Arabica coffee with growing elevations at some of the highest anywhere in the world. The region is made up of smallholder farmers, averaging two acres of land, whose families have grown coffee for generations . Previously, most of the farmers had been processing on homemade equipment in tiny amounts. Mountain Harvest was started in 2017 to organize the coffee production on Mt. Elgon. They were able to secure funding for centralized processing facilities and provide farmer education and training. Mountain Harvest has ensured some of the highest quality green coming out of the region and has led them to stand among the top producers in the country.
