Gibuzale is part of an Arabica-focused area on the middle and lower slopes of Mt. Elgon, an inactive volcano in Eastern Uganda and home to the Gibuzale Washing Station, the most remote of all the Kyagalanyi (pronounced. CHUG-uh-lani) stations. The average farm size is 2.2 acres and each farmer has around 950 coffee trees,For most Ugandan farmers, coffee is their most important cash crop and deliver their coffee cherries to the wet mills during the day. Each delivery is overseen by a field officer who makes sure at least 95% of the cherries are red and fully ripe. If they’re not, the farmer must move to a sorting area to sort through the bag until the standard is achieved. This encourages farmers to be more selective for higher quality cherries during the harvesting process.
