We've combined coffees from two farms with a tale worth telling, whose radical, fruity notes offer something truly different to the status quo. Both coffees in Two Stories are naturally processed, which gives them their distinct fruit-forward funkiness.
Half of Two Stories comes from Danisa - a group of 37 farmers, who each own on average 3.35 hectares of land. The land itself is a fertile red loam and is covered by a canopy of natural forest - the perfect conditions for growing delicious coffee. The remainder, from Ibanda in Uganda, is fast becoming one of our favourite coffees. Together, it's a blend that makes a super-juicy, sweet brew every time.
Two Stories might just make you question everything you thought you knew about coffee, and we think that's a cause for celebration. Are you ready to fall down the rabbit hole?
We've been working with Agri Evolve since 2018 - a Social Enterprise that is based in Uganda's Rwenzori Mountains. We knew from the beginning that they were our kind of people: as well as their exceptional coffee, their commitment to community and the environment is second-to-none.
Agri Evolve has launched the ACE2030 project, which aims to emphasise the integral link between Agriculture, Community and the Environment. To support the project, 60p from each kilo of Ugandan coffee we sell will go straight to ACE2030!
Two Stories is a seasonal blend, and we hope that the conversations sparked around its changing components will lead to more care and attention towards how we buy and consume coffee.
Each of the farmers at Danisa has been trained by Ture Waji (a.k.a the King of Guji), who also runs the drying stations where this coffee is processed. Meticulous separation of lots means that each delivery of cherry is fermented with great care, leading to more uniformity and pronounced sweetness.
Agri Evolve, the parent company of the Rwenzori Coffee Co. is dedicated to training farmers in the latest developments in agronomy - 'farming for a better future', as is stated in their motto. The team behind the company and the farmers who produce this crop believe that they can help elevate the status of Ugandan coffee to a more well-regarded platform within the specialty industry.
