Ibanda is a village in the northern part of Kasese District situated in one of the many valleys of the
foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains. Agri Evolve established a buying centre here for the farmers of
Ibanda and the surrounding communities higher up on the hillsides. Farmers typically have between
1 and 2 acres of land and coffee is their main cash crop. Our Field Officers work with the farmers in
groups throughout the area. Farmers have been shown how to improve their yields by using good
agricultural practices. The quality of the harvest has also been greatly improved by encouraging
farmers to only pick the fully ripe cherries. This gives the best prices.

Ripe, red coffee cherries are harvested daily during the harvest season and taken to Ibanda. The
cherries are weighed, assessed for quality and the farmers are paid in cash. From here trucks carry
the cherries to Bugoye Coffee Station. Here the cherries are floated and graded before being sundried
in the polytunnels to protect them from rain. Our teams turn the cherries several times each
day to ensure even drying whilst allowing the cherries to mature and develop their full rich flavours.
