If the bean isn’t exceptional, then the coffee won’t be either. But, exceptional beans don’t just grow on their own — they need attention and care. At Mityana Rural Coffee Farmers, we believe that care begins first with the nurturing of the soil, then the plants and cherries and then the beans. We draw on our passion for farming to craft a supremely delicious cup of 100% coffee. From our farm to your cup.

Our unique background in farming and viticulture allows us to create coffee that fully embraces your senses, from each layer of flavor to the overall aroma, mouthfeel and experience. After all, we’re crafting for you the same caliber and quality of coffee we want to enjoy! We source beans from our own Mityana Farm, a mixed elevation, sloping 26-acre piece of land in the Mityana district of Uganda, as well as from select small, sustainably-minded farms throughout Uganda.

Each small batch of hand-harvested coffee reflects the flavors and culture of Mityana, Uganda, giving you a taste of the superlative coffee farming craft and tradition on the island.




After approximately 8 months, when the plants have reached a certain level of maturity, they are transported to the plantations and planted roughly 1 to 2 meters apart under the protection of trees and shrubs, surrounded by the natural vegetation and fauna of the cultivation area.



It takes approximately 4 to 5 years for an Arabica plant to grow enough cherries to be harvested. First the coffee plants must produce small white buds that flower for between 6 to 7 months. After this time the flowers fall away leaving behind their seeds or coffee cherries.



Once the coffee plants have reached maturity they are ready for harvest. For specialty coffee this means that the coffee cherries are picked by hand for a period of up to one month. This is to ensure that only the cherries that have reached full maturity are picked, allowing the green cherries or under ripe cherries enough time to ripen.



There are many different methods of processing, all of which have a direct impact on how the coffee will taste. Even today, many people continue to experiment with different processing methods to improve and showcase the potential for the beans. Processing methods are chosen depending on the facilities and equipment that are available to the farmer and whether they have enough access to water.
