MECAHC is located on the slopes of the Mt. Elgon in Eastern Uganda. It is here, at at up to 2,000 meters above sea level, where one of the finest washed Arabica coffee of the country is produced. The cooperative started as a beekeeping and coffee integration project. After the successful completion of the project, the farmers decided to form MECAHC and, together, market coffee and honey.

MECAHC is receiving support from Progreso since 2021, in order to strengthen its capacity, improve coffee quality, get Fairtrade certified and start exporting their coffees.
