Bugoye is a community just to the north of the town of Kasese in the Rwenzori Mountains of western Uganda. It is the location of Rwenzori Coffee new Washing Station built in 2019. The local farmers are smallholders growing coffee as their main cash crop, usually to raise funds to pay school fees for their children.
Bugoye works with over 3000 farmers as part of a certification programme to ensure that everyone is well trained and benefits from the improved supply chain the station creates. The farmers throughout this area, who live and farm from 1300 up to 1900 masl, transport their freshly picked red-ripe cherries to buying stations that bridge the gap between farms and the Bugoye washing station for processing.
