Story and background of African Moon

This is a great example of a community processed natural coffee. It's comprised by over 500 farmers who process their own coffee and sell direct to the washing station. The group take special care when selecting and sorting the cherries.

Typical farmers' plot sizes will range from one to three acres and are located across the hillsides of the luscious Rwenzori mountains. This coffee is often the primary income for many families living in the Rwenzoris. The Natural process has always been the commonly practiced method for producing coffee in the region, and a recurring sight as you travel through the mountains is seeing farmers drying their harvests on tarpaulins out the front of their homes. Once processed, the coffee is then sourced by Agri Evolve and sorted into appropriate lots organised by location and date.

Despite encouragement to sell coffee as cherries, there is still a demand driven by farmers to produce traditional natural processed coffee as it is deep-rooted in the history of the Rwenzori people. Over many generations, they have developed and refined the optimum method of treating their coffee creating unique flavours from the Mountains of the moon.
