Description

Mountain Harvest is an offshoot of the Lutheran World Relief Impact Fund’s efforts to support organic practices in Uganda. Their primary investment was in the Gumutindo Cooperative who, for some time, was the only real source of organic coffees from Mt. Elgon. When this group dissolved, Mt Harvest was founded to pick up and move forward. Since then they’ve made an incredible investment in infrastructure and data collection, controlled drying, fermentation and processing. They’ve brought in western cuppers, Colombian production managers, central drying and pulping stations, and even weather stations to monitor every aspect of their coffee. And everything they do is purely organic; with yields on the rise through an aggressive compost program.
