Mountain grown. Single Origin. Artisanal & Ethical.
This organic coffee is grown by smallholder farmers in the highland villages of Mount Elgon in Uganda, a region where communities have been harvesting coffee for generations.
This group of farmers are part of Uganda’s Slow Food Presidia – an organization dedicated to protecting unique regions and ecosystems, preserving artisanal coffee values, and protecting native animal and plant species. We love that. Almost as much as we love this coffee.
At Obakki we get personal with our coffee, by selecting the highest quality beans directly from the farmers.
This coffee is fully washed and handpicked from protected trees dating back to the 1940’s. It has great balance with chocolate overtones, citrus and floral notes, and is shade grown at an altitude of 4,100 – 5,600 feet.
We are committed to improving the livelihoods of the communities
And that’s where our profits stay––with the artisans who are preserving the art of slow coffee. We keep the value chain in the country it originates from, giving our artisans a chance to benefit from every step of the process.
