In 2015 Kingsley Griffin and Maha Sarraf, the founders of Kingha Coffee, decided to break from the sand dunes and high rises of Dubai to pursue a dream of combining their passion for education with their thirst for adventure. After 3 years of investing time, energy and knowledge into their coffee estate in Southwestern Uganda, Kingha Coffee is now positioned to be one of the leading high-quality arabica coffee producing estates in Uganda.
Along with a commitment to producing naturally good coffee, we also firmly believe in creating strong ties within our local community. All employees are locally hired, professionally trained and paid a fair daily age. Our estate runs weekly agricultural education programs, based on a curriculum designed by Maha Sarraf, who holds a Masters degree in education.
One of the founding principles of Kingha Coffee is a commitment to creating sustainable development and long-term social impact. Every week students from St. James School, Karangara Community School and Nyamiyaga Seconday School come to our estate to study best-practice farming, cash crops finances, coffee garden start-up skills, and various other agriculturally related topics. As part of their day at Kingha Coffee, the students are provided with lunch and a pair of gum boots to protect their feet. All the community development programs are provided free of charge, by Kingha Coffee Company.
