The Story

Uganda | Bukonzo Dream | Whole Bean

Some of you may remember this delicious bean last season from our good friends at Omwani. Omwani have been a pleasure to work closely with, sourcing exciting coffees from new and interesting origins. The naturally processed Bukonzo Dream is back and tasting even better than before. Notes of strawberry, passionfruit, peach and lemon.

Trust was the biggest obstacle when Agri Evolve first started trying to buy cherries from farmers and cooperatives in the Rwenzoris. The primary focus initially, was to build relationships with the key decision makers in the communities to invoke confidence in our untested and unproven initiative. Given enough time there was a gradual shift in the quantity of coffee we could access in cherry form opposed to processed green. The benefits of this approach to sourcing lies in the control of quality. Purchasing coffee as freshly picked, ripe cherry directly from farmers and processing it at the washing station in Kisinga, enables Agri Evolve to control the
variables and create consistent premium coffee which was named ‘Bukonzo Dream’. 

The name is derived from The Bakonzo Tribe. A group of descendants living throughout the Rwenzori Mountains, covering both Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Individuals do not necessarily identify as citizens of either country, they will proudly announce their Bakonzo heritage.
