Zigoti Coffee Works Ltd (Zigoti) buys, roasts, processes and sells coffee. The company was established in 1992, following the closure of the Coffee Marketing Board and the liberalisation of the economy. The company has since grown from a micro business into a medium enterprise, which focuses on the growing high-quality coffee market.

The processing factories are located in Zigoti, in the district Mityana, and in the industrial area of Kampala. The coffee is sold on the local market and exported to Europe, America and Asia.

Zigoti works with coffee farmers in central, western and eastern Uganda, where it has set up a number of warehouses. Additionally, coffee is sourced from traders in various districts producing Robusta and Arabica beans.

Zigoti Coffee Works Ltd has been an Oikocredit partner since 2015.
