Natural processed coffee in Uganda is often considered some of the lowest grade coffee roasters can purchase. This grade of coffee, called DRUGAR (Dried Ugandan Arabica), is often strip picked- (mostly under-ripe) and dried on tarps on the ground. In 2015, Kawacom in Uganda set out to change what DRUGAR could be. They started with better picking and sorting practices. This was only the start and had to be combined with an immense investment into an infrastructure for meticulous drying and storage. With these two measures the natural processed lots coming from Kawacom, in partnership with the communities around them, are redefining not just what natural processed coffees from Uganda are, but re-defining the coffee from Uganda as a whole.
