ABOUT THE PRODUCER:

Uganda has been a tough place for local independents. Over the years multinational washing stations have supplanted older organizations such as cooperatives, associations, and farmer groups. One reason – access to capital. Another, access to international markets.

Still, there are a few Ugandan coffee entrepreneurs who are taking the harder path towards export. They happen to be really stellar people who, we believe, have a real chance at making the more traditional community-up approach work again. This is why we’re excited to introduce our first coffee from Mamboo Coffee Network.

Mamboo is the name taken by a strong network of select farmers concentrated in the Sipi Falls region. It means ‘information’ and ‘greetings’, meanings that can be seen again in their objectives of educating farmers and making new friends through specialty coffee.

Their headquarters is actually a coffee shop, opened up by farmers, for farmers in Kapchorwa town. Their operation is centered on the passion and expertise of Dison Kareng, who leads the Mamboo Coffee Network.

He is a lead farmer who has organized "elite" farmer groups around multiple collection stations across the Kapchorwa region of Mt. Elgon. His expertise is in knowing this area, these farmers, and their coffees better than anyone else on the mountain.
In order to support farmers in achieving better prices for their coffees, Dison feels that "the most important thing is quality; we handle coffee with quality from harvesting, processing and milling. We train farmers the best agronomic practices, connect them with good agro-input dealers."
