DRUGAR (Dried Ugandan Arabica) has been neglected as some of the lowest quality of coffee in Uganda, due to a history of poor harvesting practices, resulting in largely underripe crops. Kawacom, a processing company started in 1999 in Uganda, has taken the goal of expanding the potential of these coffees, focusing on harvesting and processing practices to produce a cleaner crop. 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 resulting quality and consistency is striking – the coffee has a loud, fruit forward profile, but thanks to meticulous drying and care, the coffee holds its profile over time extremely well.
