Uganda offering coffee enthusiasts from Middle East a once-in-a-lifetime experience

Uganda Tourism Board

This summer, coffee lovers from the Middle East are invited to experience Uganda’s one-of-a-kind coffee tours.

Visitors can learn about coffee farming, the processing of plants and the source of the coffee beans. They can also enjoy a tour of the farm, where many activities will take place, and unlimited coffee tasting.

Uganda’s special coffee tour will allow visitors to roast their own beans under professional supervision and will educate them on how the coffee is prepared before being served in cafés. It will also educate them on the farming process and introduce them to certain cafés that serve the freshest local coffee.

Uganda’s coffee beans flow from the slopes of the Rwenzori and Elgon mountains, and the west of the Nile. Recently, Uganda Tourism Board (UTB) and the World Wildlife Fund, in partnership with Uganda’s Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities and the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), constructed and handed over a coffee house aimed at supporting the local community living near at the Rwenzori Mountain National Park.

The destination has grown to become one of the top exporters of quality coffee across Africa. Uganda’s coffee has already built a reputation amongst global coffee connoisseurs for being great tasting and well-balanced. With high-quality beans coming from some of the finest Robusta trees in the world and the top-grade Arabia Coffee, the country has become the go-to destination for all coffee enthusiasts.

Due to the increasing demand for Uganda’s unparalleled coffee, many coffee houses in Kampala are using the fresh beans to brew some of the finest blends. The number of cafés in the capital is growing and visitors can get a chance to try the local specialty coffee from various places.
