Mirembe Kawomera “Delicious Peace” Coffee
Grown high on the slopes of Mt. Elgon, a dormant volcano in eastern Uganda, Mirembe Kawomera Coffee is produced in small batches by the family farmers of the Peace Kawomera Cooperative, composed of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim coffee farmers working together under a unique initiative for peace
Rich volcanic soils, shade canopy, and artisan production methods combine to produce an exceptional coffee bean with distinctive flavor and character. The antique Arabica varieties cultivated by the farmers of the Peace Kawomera Cooperative were planted nearly a century ago, after being transported from nearby Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee. It is described as “Full-bodied and lively, with hints of pecan and notes of nutmeg, and a lingering sensation of malty antiquity”.
