Kalingwe is a village in the foothills of the Rwenzori mountains and this coffee is a collaborative effort from from the farmers in the area. Typical farm sizes are just a few acres and coffee is the main cash crop. The cherries are harvested daily and brought down to the washing station where they are dried and then sent on for export.
We buy the coffee from Rwenzori coffee who run the washing station and the donkeys to get the coffee down the hill.
Our tasting notes were wine, berries, and cloves, it’s quite an unusual one but very enjoyable.
