    The Region

    Situated at the feet of the Rwenzori mountains just north of Lake George, the region around Kasese has excellent conditions for speciality Arabica production with some of the highest altitude in Uganda, fertile soil and plentiful rainfall. However widespread poverty and a lack of infrastructure, as well as the political upheaval in Uganda over the past 40 years has meant this region has struggled to realise its full potential for speciality arabica production. 

    This is changing over time, with a number of specialty producers now engaging with smallholder farmers throughout the Rwenzoris to improve both quality and yield, and ultimately estbalish a more sustainable and equitable coffee sector in the region.
