After a little Christmas pre-release in our Loveramics Dripper Kit, we’ve now made our latest Uncommon, Tangwen, Uganda, available for purchase. Coffees from Uganda don't have solid ground in the specialty coffee market, the country has a long coffee tradition and notably claims Canephora (aka Robusta) as an indigenous coffee species, but reliance on robusta has failed to produce significant economic gains for the coffee producing communities. At the same time, the opportunity for growing specialty grade coffee has become clear- volcanic soils, good rainfall and high altitudes - along with farming communities keen to use coffee as a vehicle for better lives. Enter the Zukuka Bora Coffee Company. With coffee farmers at the heart of this project - and as joint shareholders - the team at Zukuka Bora set out to support farmers with the right tools, training, financing and, critically, the establishment of local mills to process their coffee. Not only does Zukuka Bora purchase ripe coffee from the farming communities surrounding these mills at a 20% premium to market rates, they also provide a bonus to farmers during 'the hungry season' - the middle of the season when farmers' money is invested in plantations, waiting on new crops. Now providing fairly-paid work for over 100 people during harvest in remote mountain areas, Zukuka Bora's profits go on to fund Jenga's education sponsorships, clean water schemes, health promotion and much more. In Tangwen we taste Passionfruit, Rum & Marmalade. #greatcoffeeincommon #commonmancoffeeroasters
