Val&tins Garden Isule Blend, Uganda

The Isule Blend is a blend of 80% Arabica from Western Uganda and 20% Robusta. A strong coffee with a balanced, chocolaty flavour. With a medium roast, the subtle flavour nuances are preserved. Isule is located in western Uganda at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo. A small cooperative in the community of Isule in western Uganda produces an excellent, single-origin Arabica coffee.The Rwenzori Massif is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its high ecological importance. Even the Greek geographer Ptolemy reported on the legendary "Mountains of the Moon", where the Nile is said to have originated. Trees covered in dense lichen and primordial plants line the path to one of the most beautiful natural paradises in Central Africa. Despite its close proximity to the equator, the climate is pleasantly mild and the soil rich in nutrients. These ideal conditions favour the cultivation of high-quality Arabica coffee.The plantation is located at over 1'600m above sea level. On the steep slopes, the ripe coffee cherries are carefully picked by hand. Coffee is the only source of income for the community of Isule. Every additional franc the farmers receive per kilogram secures the income for the families and thus also the expensive school fees for the numerous children.In Western Uganda, coffee is often sold to middlemen below cost price and mixed with other low-quality varieties. In this way, coffees of varying quality find their way into the world market. Val&tin's garden believe that direct trade offers a real opportunity to bring producers and consumers directly together. That is why they have launched the Isulecoffee project. With this project, they enable farmers to connect directly to the market and thus sustainably improve working and living conditions in Isule.

El Imposible Roasters Turquoise, Bugisu, Uganda

This 100% Arabica coffee is particularly suitable for preparation with the mocha or French press, but also with the fully automatic machine or filter. It is a mild coffee of medium roast for Americano as well as cappuccino lovers.The Turquoise line includes the SL 14 coffee variety and comes from the coffee plantation of Gidegi Nicanoli from the Bugisu region in Uganda, where his Arabica coffee is grown at an altitude of 1,940 metres above sea level. His family started growing coffee in 1989, and in addition to coffee, bananas and beans are also cultivated on the estate. Bugisu is a region in north-eastern Uganda in the area of the Mountain Elgon National Park, about 100km north-east of Lake Victoria. The equatorial climate around the extinct volcano Mountain Elgon is a preferred coffee growing area because of its regular, abundant rainfall and fertile soil - a perfect combination between rain, sun and the mineral-rich volcanic soils.El Imposible Roasters Gmbh is a micro-roasting company from Horw, Lucerne, founded in 2015 and run by Mario Waldispühl and Mira Hochstrasser since then. Their first imported green coffee came from a finca located on the barely conquerable El Imposible hill range in El Salvador. El Imposible also stands for a project that seemed impossible just a few years ago, namely to import green coffee from El Salvador and Uganda directly to Switzerland without sourcing it via the world market trade, thus ensuring fair compensation for the coffee farmers. The coffees are traceable back to the respective coffee farmer and the coffee farmers in Uganda know them personally.Mario and Mira have a wealth of experience in gastronomy and food science. Mario is a former chef and partner of the Gasthaus Krone with 15 Gault Millau points and currently co-owner of the Jazzkantine. Other areas of activity include catering and working as a private chef. He is also involved in "Cuisine sans frontières" and is co-organiser of the Kitchen Battle Lucerne. Mira is a food engineer with a Master of Science from the ETH in Food Science. Previously, she had a career in baby milk development and at a muesli manufacturer. In addition to her work at El Imposible Roasters, she is a 40 per cent lecturer at the Strickhof vocational school in Au-Wädenswil for prospective food technologists.

Val&tins Garden Isule Honey, Uganda

The Isule Dark Night is a dark roasted coffee. Strong, low in acidity and with a hint of dark chocolate. At higher temperatures in the roasting drum, the sugar in the beans begins to caramelise.

In Africa, and especially in Uganda, the nights are jet black. ISULE's latest creation is also inspired by this.Isule is located in western Uganda at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Demeter coffee versus organic coffee: what's behind it?

Organic coffee and Demeter coffee - two terms that often appear in connection with sustainable coffee enjoyment. But what is the difference? This much can be revealed: Demeter certification includes far stricter guidelines - from compliance with biodynamic production guidelines to a wide range of sustainability aspects.

Why is sustainability so important in coffee production in particular?

Sustainability is the key to ethical, environmentally friendly and future-proof coffee production. But that's not all: sustainable farming methods often lead to higher quality coffee beans with unique flavors, which benefits both producers and consumers. Sustainable practices reduce the use of chemicals, protect soils, preserve biodiversity and protect the climate.

How does organic coffee differ from conventional coffee?

Organic coffee is more than just a drink. It is a statement for environmental awareness, fair trade and pure enjoyment. In contrast to monoculture in conventional cultivation, organic farmers rely on mixed cultivation, which means that coffee plants are allowed to grow together with other plant species. Why is that? This promotes biodiversity and makes the plants more resistant to disease.

Monocultures, on the other hand, harbor serious ecological and economic risks. Focusing on the cultivation of a single plant species over large areas leads to greater susceptibility to diseases and pests and to rapid soil depletion

Coffee plants are very sensitive. Too much heat, but also too much cold, damages them. Moisture is good, but not too much. Coffee farmers like to plant avocado, grapefruit or banana trees, coconut palms or eucalyptus plants next to coffee plants. These mixed cultures ensure that coffee plants are protected from too much sunlight and heavy rainfall.

Organically grown - sustainably enjoyed Conventional coffee cultivation often relies on chemical fertilizers, which provide short-term growth but deplete the soil in the long term. Organic coffee farmers, on the other hand, rely on compost and organic fertilizers. The result? Fertile soils where coffee plants feel right at home.

Fair trade, fair wages Organic coffee stands for fairness not only towards nature, but also towards the coffee farmers. Fair trade practices guarantee fair wages, so that every sip of coffee also bears some social responsibility. Incidentally, unlike conventional coffee, organic farmers harvest their coffee cherries by hand. Industrial harvesting methods are not used.
