The Omukwano agreement includes both Robusta coffee
, cultivated in the Lake Victoria basin at varying altitude of 900-1,500 Metres, and Arabica
in the mountainous areas in the north of the country.
Uganda produces some of the finest coffees in the world. The Robusta
tree is indigenous of the area, while the Arabica
comes from the neighbouring Ethiopia, place of origin of coffee.
The advantages offered by the Omukwano project
, coupled with the constant supervision by NUCAFE, provide an opportunity to farmers to produce a coffee of outstanding character with respect to the ordinary products available in the market.
