A journey of taste and flavour

We are often searching for something: an idea, a new project, or our next holiday destination,... when most of the time, we would just like to be surprised.

Today, Yaca surprises you and takes you to East Africa, in the heart of the Ugandan nature... and as the "cherry on the coffee", as nature does things well, we let it express itself by finding for you the exceptional arabica.

Our mission is to select naturally flavorful coffee.

More than a coffee, a means to collaborate and improve the incomes of small-scale coffee farmers across Uganda.

We know the source of our coffee beans and we focus on its origin. We select for unique flavor and terroir.

Sipi Hill, where our beans are grown is located at an altitude of over 1500 meters. Nothing happens by chance; the location was chosen for its ideal growing environment of high quality and unique coffee trees.

There are different methods of harvesting . Yaca has chosen the most noble method, which consists in picking only fully ripe coffee cherries.

Practically, we give time to nature and to the coffee trees to give its best.
The disadvantage of this method is that the coffee farmer must concentrate on picking only the ripe coffee cherries and has to repeat the process several times on the same plant.

On the other hand, no doubt that the quality is superior, easily justifying the extra work.

We value the work of our coffee farmers working on the ground. The farmers of Mount Elgon are our heroes who plant and harvest coffee using sustainable farming practices, handpicked and without middlemen.

During workshops and seminars organized on site, we encourage and coach young innovative entrepreneurs and emerging leaders in agri-business with the aim to help them create new businesses.

We love to be in the field, in the middle of the coffee plantations meeting the producers personally. We are very interested to learn about their farming practices and expertise.

Our partners automatically feel valued and appreciative. During the days spent with them, we exchange new ideas, improvements and techniques we observed on other farms. These are precious moments when we build real trust with the same common goal of ‘making the impossible possible’.

Wild landscapes and a unique cultural heritage remain strong in this under-explored region of Uganda.

Known for the views of the waterfalls, the excellent coffee, grown and roasted on site. Visitors can explore the breathtaking natural
environment by taking walks and coffee tours.

Yaca and its producers

Close to nature, in search of local flavors and encounters, we searched remote parts of the world, with landscapes that have remained wild and unspoilt. This is why we have chosen the Mont Elgron region of Uganda.

Through visits to the plantations, sharing and discussing, Yaca has developed its coffee knowledge through the transmission of expertise from our local producers, and privileged contacts.

Grown and harvested entirely by hand each coffee cherry is carefully selected and dried in the sun, before embarking us on a unique and rich full-flavoured journey.
