Kyagalanyi Coffee Ltd, which was founded in 1992, is Uganda's oldest licensed coffee exporter. We source and export some of the finest conventional and certified Robusta and Arabica (washed and natural) coffee from all the country's major growing regions.
Coffee is an important cash crop in Uganda, with an estimated 1.7 million farmers cultivating more than 90 percent of the production. Uganda, blessed with two rainy seasons and a diverse range of agro-ecologies, offers the world a year-round supply of Arabica and Robusta coffee. Its high altitude and cool equatorial climate favours slow ripening, giving rise to some of Africa's most superior coffees produced by smallholder growers.
Through our sustainability initiatives, we work directly with farming communities in the Mt Elgon, Greater Rwenzori, and Greater Masaka regions, providing technical assistance to address farm productivity and quality, climate change impact, and social challenges and risks.
