About This Coffee
Mt. Elgon cuts a striking profile against the expansive sky. The farmers in the Yilwanako community grow coffee on elevations that are among the highest for coffee any where in the world. At heights higher than 2,200 meters, coffee trees, which are mostly Kenyan cultivars, are exposed to high solar radiation in the daytime and chilly temperatures at night. Add to these conditions the tendency toward sporadic rainfall and mist, and the fact that any coffee exists—let alone such exceptional coffee—is truly a feat. Farmers must be vigilant in their monitoring, protecting drying coffee from the rains and turning them frequently to prevent rot and prolong shelf life.
