Salt Spring Coffee is raising funds for one of our coffee producers, Bukonzo Joint Cooperative Union in Uganda. They have experienced severe flooding in May, 2020. As a result, houses, crops, and milling equipment have been washed out.
We have donated $2,700 for immediate relief, and we are now raising funds to help rebuild their facilities by releasing a small batch, single-origin coffee sourced exclusively from Bukonzo Joint.
The mountain range of East Africa, at the source of the Nile River, is referred to as the Mountains of the Moon. This is where Bukonzo Joint is located.
Producers of high quality, specialty Arabica coffee beans that are certified organic and fair trade, Bukonzo Joint also boasts gender equality focused team and a Sustainability Award from the Specialty Coffee Association.
We have been partners with Bukonzo Joint since 2014.
In 2015, we donated $10,000 to fund a cupping lab at Bukonzo Joint. We have sponsored representatives from Bukonzo Joint to attend Specialty Coffee Association events.
We aim to flourish alongside our coffee producing partners, care for the wellbeing of the planet and roast great coffee!
