This is just the first year of production for the Bulambuli washing station, which was only built last year, and an exciting time for us to get involved in a new project. This coffee comes as a result of a three-way collaboration between a local land owner/entrepreneur (Ben Mukhone), local exporter and 2 coffee importers. One of the main aims for this was to produce coffees that are fully traceable.
The washing station is located in Bulambuli town in Mt. Elgon, east Uganda. All cherries taken to the washing station come from smallholder communities that are looked after by Ben, he is responsible for staffing, production and daily operations at the washing station.
