Nakana Coffee Factory limited started in 1984 with only a processing plant in Buwama Mawokota in Mpigi district. It later opened up a grading plant in Kataza off old Port bell road. This factory processes and exports both Robusta and Arabica coffee to countries like Japan, China, Switzerland and many others.
Nakana Coffee Factory is located 64 kilometres along Kampala-Masaka road situated in Buwama trading centre in Mpigi district. Initially it had one branch in Buwama where the processing plant is and as business expanded, it opened up a branch in Kataza off old Port bell road in Kampala district. The processing plant in Buwama is where coffee is processed and cleaned. That is to say, coffee husking and a bit of cleaning are done in the processing plant.
