Our Story

It all started with 4 coffee farmers in Kibinge, Central Uganda. Kibinge is a region that has long been famous for excellent Robusta coffee. Due to economic pressures and political unrest, the quality and volumes of the coffee had plummeted by 1995. That is when our four founding coffee farmers decided to bring the tradition of high quality Robusta coffee back to the hills of Kibinge and formed a farmers’ association that would later become Kibinge Coffee Farmers’ Co-operative Society (KCFCS).

Since our inception in 1995, Kibinge Coffee has undergone numerous changes but the focus has remained on providing the finest Robusta coffee while empowering our farmers to improve their livelihoods.

This pursuit led Kibinge to become a registered Co-operative in 2009, become Fairtrade certified in 2011 and a registered coffee exporter in Uganda in 2012.

In 2014, Kibinge was honored to be awarded as the Fairtrade Small Producer of the Year for Africa. Kibinge recently added a Savings and Credit unit as well as a Farm Supply Shop in order to further serve our farmers. Membership has exceeded 2,000 and Kibinge now employs 46 full-time staff.

Kibinge Coffee has remained true to our mission of improving the lives of our farmers and community. Recent projects include bringing power to a local health centre, building latrines for one of our community schools, and working to improve the quality of the roads in our district. At the end of each year, Kibinge distributes a portion of profits straight back to our farmers to reward them for their hard work and success.

 

Kibinge Coffee is excited for the future as we continue to grow while providing the best Ugandan Robusta coffee and empowering our farmers.
