The main harvest from the peak of Mt. Elgon and the heart of Ugandan Coffee
Bulaago is a village in Buzabiti District, a part of the larger Bugisu region -where Uganda's most sought-after washed Arabica coffees hail from. Those who know Bugisu coffee well know that Bulaago farmers produce some of the best quality on the mountain. For this reason, farmers are never short of a reliable market. However, they lack the recognition and reward that would allow them to truly benefit from their coffee.
The Bulaago Project builds a system through which farmers receive higher compensation and support (from Crop to Cup and local agricultural partners) in exchange for taking the extra steps to produce top-lot, high scoring specialty grade coffee.
