African Moon is a community-sourced naturally-processed arabica. Over 850 passionate farmers contribute to this regular harvest. Typically, farmers plot size ranges from 1-3 acres and are positioned all over the hillside of the luscious Rwenzori mountains.
African Moon is regularly the primary income for many of the families of the Rwenzoris. Since coffee processing began in the Rwenzoris, there has been little washing station processed coffee. Processing is typically done at the farmer level.
Since 2015, farmers have been encouraged to sell coffee as cherry rather than green. Masereka Obed is the lead farmer and one of the elders responsible for this group.
