WAY THERE
WAY THERE

You will drive (10 minutes) or walk (30 minutes) to a coffee grower’s homestead on a hill that separates Kisoro Town from Lake Mutanda. Your companion: Julius Wetala, a coffee expert from a Mbale family of growers.

If you come by car, you will park in a village and then experience a steep climb of about 10 minutes before you reach the family compound.

PLANTATION
PLANTATION

Wetala will first show you the plantation and talk about the difference between Arabica and Robusta. Of the two coffee species, Arabica is compatible with high altitude areas and therefore the choice of our region.

PROCESSING
PROCESSING

At the family house you will then witness wet processing (when the outer layer is removed by pulping). Dry parchment is then taken for hauling as the farmer cleans the beans.

ROASTING
ROASTING

The lady of the house will roast the beans in a thatched area in front of the house. There are three levels of coffee roasting: light roast, medium roast and dark roast. Which one would you prefer?
