Kingha Estate is located in a pretty remote area in the south west, about 10 hours drive from Kampala. It is a farm currently being planted aiming at soon having about 12 hectares planted with coffee, SL 28 variety only. It also operates as a washing station for small scale farmers (outgrowers) in the area.
Most farmers have about 2 acres on average. Some have 5, a few families above 20 acres.
Along with growing great coffee, Kingha Coffee is dedicated to increasing the income and livelihood of Ugandan coffee farmers. They work directly with farmer households, providing education and training programs.
Kingha Coffee believes in giving back to the community that has given them so much, and are very proud to be part of the local community. They provide community development through job creation and market access.
