  • Description

    Case of 6x227g Organic Mount Elgon Cloud Forest Coffee - Uganda from Source Coffee.

    A unique, single origin organic speciality coffee. Full bodied and roasted a little longer to bring out the dark chocolate richness and toasty notes to make a round flavoured and aromatic cup.
    Brimming with environmental, social and ecological benefits, this outstanding single origin coffee supports some 300 coffee farmers in a reforestation project around the Mount Elgon region of Uganda. The project provides a safeguard for Mount Elgon National Park and Central Forest – one of the most diverse ecosystems in Africa – by reducing pressure on resources. The coffee rewards farmers in and around Mount Elgon to protect the forests by planting trees and reducing a dependency on clearing forests for firewood, which in turn protects hundreds of animal species including forest monkeys and antelope which graze on the mountainside.
    Each bag has a unique tracking number to show the farmer’s on-going conservation efforts at the cloud forest of origin. For every bag sold, local farmers plant trees to support the forest and their families. All Source coffees are offset using reforestation carbon credits and are 100% traceable to the forest community conservation project.

  • About the Producer
    Cristina Talens is the Founder and Director of Source Climate Change coffee and has over 15 years’ experience in ethical trading, sustainability, and rainforest protection, having worked as Ethical Trading Manager for a leading Roast & Ground coffee company and alongside a network of conservation organisations developing the United Bank of Carbon. She started her working life as a human rights campaigner at Antislavery International. Over the years, she has worked alongside small farmers, indigenous people and plantation workers in coffee, tea, and cocoa in over 14 countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, conducting social audits of suppliers and growers. ‘This involves looking into working and living conditions in the fields and ensuring that the prices we pay benefit everyone in the supply chain. Cristina says, ‘It’s not all altruistic: it means we get the best coffee, and we can give that traceability to our customers.’ It was during one such trip that and her experience with the 10,000 strong Ashaninka Indigenous Community within the Amazon forest of Peru that drove home the real importance of forests in ecological hotspots, ‘The journey was a real eye opener. It was the first time I was able to see for myself how the rainforest works. I saw the mist gathering over the trees – the trees generating the clouds that would then produce rain. There are huge population pressures in these areas, people are poor, they need firewood for cooking and energy, and they need the land to grow food.’ It was then that she hit upon the idea of creating a gourmet coffee that would incentivise small farmers to protect primary forests. Source is today the only conservation-led coffee company, which is founded to protect the world’s forests, helping customers to make direct payments for ecosystem services for every bag or tin that is sold through reforestation carbon credits. Her products are supported by the Plan Vivo Foundation, an independent standard, specifically designed to incentivise smallholders and forest-user groups to provide ecosystem services.
