Follow the trees and the coffee will follow... How difficult can it be?
When I first set out to find a second cloud forest gourmet coffee, I headed to Africa, literally full of beans. My target was Uganda, where I knew of two fantastic tree planting projects. The first to the west of the country near the Congolese border where wild forests abound, the second to the east in the famous Mount Elgon region, which is renowned for producing some of the very best coffee the country has to offer. To cut a long story short, this has not been an easy process. But, I’ve always believed where there is a way… I’m delighted to say that almost a year and a half later, Source now has its second gourmet single origin coffee from a couple of fantastic community groups in some of the most beautiful remote cloud forests of East Africa.
