    Mahango is at 1800 m.a.s.l. in the foothills of the Rwenzoris, with many farmers living and growing coffee well above this height. Farmers typically have between 1 and 2 acres of land and coffee is their main cash crop.
    Ripe, red cherries are harvested daily during the harvest season and taken to the buying center. The cherries are weighed , assessed for quality and the farmers are paid in cash. From here trucks carry the cherries to the coffee station. The cherries are floated and graded before being sun-dried. The teams turn the cherries several times each day to ensure even drying whilst allowing the cherries to mature and develop their full rich flavours.
    This coffee is imported by Agri Evolve, a very small business who have helped to set up the washing station in the Rwenzoris. They have worked for nearly a decade with the farmers and have built a great system, ensuring fair pay and consistent work for all the locals.
