The name is derived from The Bakonzo Tribe. A group of descendants living throughout the Rwenzori Mountains, covering both Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo. Individuals do not necessarily identify as citizens of either country, they will proudly announce their Bakonzo heritage.
Our importing partner Omwani worked closely with the washing station manager, Chris, who was from the Tribe. Chris relayed that his dream would be to have coffee from the Bakonzo people roasted and enjoyed by the people of the UK. Fast-forward and this then became a reality, which is turning into a great success! And that is how Bukonzo Dream was born...
Lots are organised by geographic regions coordinated with specialist buying centres, often broken down even further into specific day-lots. Focus is on controlling the natural processing of cherries while paying special attention to controlling quality, utilising round-the-clock techniques, constantly refining every process to create the best possible Rwenzori coffee.
