This coffee comes from Bwindi Kingha Collective and it is a washed and dry-fermented coffee. It is a blend of SL varieties commonly planted and grown in the region. The coffees are grown by a farmer group located predominantly in the hills surrounding Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Naming this blend Bwindi is fitting as the majority of the outgrower farmers will remain the same year after year.
Bwindi is in the same locality as Kingha Estate, where altitudes range from 1300 to 1600 masl. The cherries are purchased from the farmers and processed and dried at Kingha Estate, which has a wet mill that operates as a communal micro-washing station.
This coffee comes from a 41 bag (á 60kg) lot, picked over a period of some weeks. These cherries are floated, then pulped by a Penagos Eco-Pulper, but by-passing the demucilager, keeping all mucilage on the parchment. From there the coffee goes to a tank for fermentation before it is carefully dried on raised tables, partially under shade and cover from the rain.
