Macheri Coffees (U) Ltd is a family-owned private company that grows and processes high-quality Bugisu-washed arabica coffee grown on the slopes of Mount Elgon. We also work hand in hand with our neighbourhood smallholder farmers as out-growers ensuring traceability, and good farming practices.

Our coffee comes from our own coffee plantations and selected members, grown in the rich volcanic soils of Mt Elgon at an altitude of 1500 meters, it is shade grown, and most of our coffee trees are over 50 years.

We use the traditional methods of weed control slashing and hand hoe in an eco-friendly environment. These ensure a unique aroma freshness and taste.
