Tasting Notes:

Blood Orange Strawberry Honey



Kalingwe has a sharp orange and strawberry vibrancy with a creamy body and sweet finish.  

Kalingwe is a small community, high in the foothills of the Rwenzoris. There are 3 groups of coffee farmers within this area with a total of 107 farmers. Farmers pick their ripe red cherries as high as 2,100 metres.  They are then transported to Agri Evolves processing station at Nyabirongo. Kalingwe demonstrates clearly the high-quality, naturally processed coffee coming from the Rwenzoris.

60p from each kilo sold goes directly to the ACE2030 project in Uganda’s Rwenzori mountains.

    Rwenzori Mountains

    The Rwenzoris are situated in the West of Uganda, and are the home to all of our Ugandan coffees. Farmers in the area typically have 1-2 acres of land, and sell their ripe coffee cherry at washing stations managed by Agri Evolve.

    Sweet & Complex

    Kalingwe has all the hallmarks of a great African natural - with notes of blood orange and nectarine, it's up there with the best of them.


    The natural process requires skill and attention to get right. The ripe coffee cherry is picked and left out to ferment in the sun,  turned regularly so that no mould grows. The enzymatic reactions that occur here sink right into the seed (or bean), and leave you with a coffee that's full of funkiness and complexity. 

    The process historically was common in places with less water available, but you'll see it all over the world these days, in producer's quests to find wild results in their lots.

    Fruity Intensity

    Naturally processed coffees have that heady funkiness that might not be your traditional idea of intense, but they're powerful nonetheless. Kalingwe is a fine example of a clean, well processed natural that shows off how complex coffee can be.
