In the last few years, Kawacom, a processing company started in 1999 in Uganda, has taken the goal of expanding the potential of Ugandan coffees, focusing on special processing methods to put the country on the specialty coffee map. Since their beginnings, they have invested in Kapchorwa, home to some of the highest elevation coffee farms in the country. What results is producers devoted to quality with a processing station that matches their enthusiasm. 

This lot comes from the Yembek community, one of the highest elevation coffee producing regions in the country. Kawacom works closely with this community, consulting with growers to determine when the cherry selection is optimal for processing. The coffee cherry is kept in an airtight container before being pulped, and fermented on raised beds. It is then dried on raised beds to 10.5-11% moisture. The black honey process brings out delicate and complex fruits while maintaining the clearer profile of a washed coffee.
