The Coffee Gardens was established in 2017 with the goal of producing incredible specialty coffee in an ethical way, offering a transparent and direct link between coffee farmers and coffee consumers. The following information on our 2020 micro-lots has been produced to enable our customer and consumers to better understand the coffee they are buying, the story behind it, and the incredible farmers who grow it.
The Coffee Gardens Project has been established with many purposes such as improve farmers’ income and livelihoods, create and provide rural employment, promote gender equality, increase transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain and environmental protection in the area.
In the 2020 season, The Coffee Gardens purchased coffee cherries at an average price of 1,400UGX (38 cent US) per KG of red cherry. Our price was around 30% above the rate offered by traders. The Coffee Gardens also incentivize and reward farmers through a number of different monetary and non-monetary ways. This includes post-season bonuses, additional income-generating and employment opportunities, tree distribution and a range of all-year-round training programs.
The Coffee Gardens is transparent with theirs partner farmers about buying policy and prices, providing each registered farmer with a contract and a buying-record book, communicating any price changes via SMS to registered farmers, and providing receipts for every transaction. The coffee in this micro-lot is grown by the farmers living on the top of the mountain near to The Coffee Gardens’ washing station, in Bukyabo, Sironko District. The farmers bring the coffee cherries down to our processing station, earning extra income. The contributing farmers have received weekly training by The Coffee Gardens’ agronomists on improved agriculture.
The lot has been done with coffees from 89 farmers, including 10 women. Each farmer provided an average of 300 KGs of red cherry.
