our story

our vision is to produce the finest coffee and sell it around the world

Carico works towards making a real difference in the lives of the small scale farmers across Africa who grow our coffee and pay them a fair price. Our vision is to produce the finest coffee and sell it around the world and reinvest in the communities which grow the crops. We aim to prosper along with the farmers from whom we buy our coffee. We buy only high quality coffee beans and we get them at source from small scale farmers and co-operatives across East Africa. We encourage the farmers we work with to preserve their soil and to practice sustainable harvesting and processing. Our first range of coffees were from Uganda where we were founded.

BUGISU BLUE

This is a hand pulped single origin AA arabica coffee grown on the slopes of Mt. Elgon in eastern Uganda at an altitude of over 1300 metres above sea level in rich volcanic loam soils, which create a medium body coffee with low acidity. The coffee is hand picked and wet processed to create a clean flavour and a consistent profile. The tasting notes for our Bugisu Blue are dried plum and lemon lime with notes of chocolate and almonds.

Our Process

Our Ugandan coffees are grown by hand on small scale farms in the shade of the banana plants which are the staple food of the country. This embodies a natural ecology system that protects the coffee beans from insects and provide shade for the plants and shelter for birds. The coffees are hand picked and wet processed to create a clean flavour and a consistent profile before being expertly roasted by hand in South Africa by skilled baristas to maximize the sweetness and aroma of the coffee while minimizing the bitterness and acidity.
