The Story Behind the Coffee

Our importer has maintained a decade-long relationship with Agaro and the Kata Muduga cooperative union, a partnership that began even before Red Fox was established. Here is what they have to say about this coffee:

“Despite Agaro’s well-established excellence and widespread name recognition, the Agaro coffees we know and love today didn’t find their way to market until just ten years ago, after USAID’s Technoserve project vested this region—once known for less-than-stellar Grade 5 sundried naturals—with brand-new processing equipment, allowing their coffee to showcase its unique character and improve the lives of those growing it in the process. Kolla Bolcha represents that investment to the fullest.” 

“Thanks to Technoserve’s initial investment and the stellar leadership of Kolla Bolcha and Kata Muduga, Kolla Bolcha’s processing is immaculate, leading to an incredible showcase of the coffee’s natural potential for a ridiculously long time off harvest. The secret? After Penagos processing equipment mechanically removes most of the fruit and mucilage from the seeds, they soak overnight in fiberglass tanks, allowing any remaining sugars to be fully removed from their surface so that the coffees are perfectly clean by the time they hit the drying beds for the eight-plus days they’ll need to dry.”
