The Ibanda is a hand-picked coffee, grown at an altitude of 1400 – 2000 masl. It’s harvested annually in the month of October by Salastial Masereka and his team of farmers.
Ibanda is a village in the Northern part of Kasese District, situated in one of the many valleys of the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains. Farmers here typically have between 1 and 2 acres of land and coffee is their main cash crop.
The coffee cherries are weighed, assessed for quality and the farmers are paid in cash. The cherries are taken to a washing station where they are floated before being sun-dried. The team at the washing station turn cherries several times a day to ensure even drying, allowing the cherries to develop a full rich flavour.
The final cup boasts a juicy red fruit acidity, with notes of cranberry, pomegranate and a silky milk chocolate finish.
