Uganda Gorilla Summit – 10 oz
Gorilla Summit Coffee was founded in 2012 with the express mission to allow farmers to earn better income on their coffee. The initiative began in the village of Kanugu, where local producers were only able to find local buyers at exceptionally low prices. By offering training to improve farming and harvesting techniques, as well as building a cherry receiving station and installing modern processing equipment, Gorilla Summit Coffee helped farmers produce higher-quality coffee, propelling this region of Uganda to the forefront of specialty coffee in the country.
In addition to higher overall prices, farmers are eligible for other livelihood-improvement programs such as educational opportunities for youth, diversification projects, and access to community health care.
These coffees are grown in an area near Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and forest, a protected primeval forest that reaches elevations up to 2,600 meters.
Cupping Notes: Sweet, clean, tart and fruity with cocoa, cranberry and praline flavor.
