The Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA), the government agency in charge of the industry, estimates that approximately 500,000 families rely on espresso production. In Uganda, the two most common types of coffee are Arabica and Robusta. On average, annual production consists of 15% Arabica and 85% Robusta. In addition to serving as a primary source of income, coffee also serves a variety of other functions, providing various excellent opportunities for capital growth speculation. Asthma, migraines, and Alzheimer’s disease can all be treated with coffee. As an energizer, espresso can interfere with sleep, causing someone to work for longer periods of time. Coffee is also known to contain over 700 unique combinations and hence has numerous current applications, particularly in the synthetic industry.

Arabica coffee is typically grown on mixed farms alongside food crops for domestic consumption such as beans, peanuts, and bananas. It is primarily grown under shade trees, which ensures long-term coffee production. The fallen leaves from the shade trees serve as manure for the coffee plants.

Arabica coffee is planted in Mbale between March and April and harvested between August and November. Before the planting season, the coffee trees are pruned from December to February. During the dry season, the trees bloom. Therefore, this excursion will take you to a local coffee farm, where you will explore the coffee plantation before heading to the processing center, where you will remove the husks, roast the beans, and brew a fresh cup of coffee to taste right away.

Farmers pick large red beans, dehusk them, and dry them for two weeks. They combine them with ash, which softens the covering for initial germination. Back at the family home, you’ll see wet processing, which involves pulping to remove the coat. The dried parchment is then hauled, allowing the farmer to clean the beans. Grading is done based on size. Come and enjoy the best coffee tours in Uganda as you explore many other safari activities in Uganda. Thus, you can combine the gorilla tours and wildlife safaris with the coffee tours in Uganda.
