This "double picked" Arabica coffee from the Bugisu region of Uganda is a "secret" amongst coffee buffs. The landlocked region near Lake Victoria has had great difficulty getting it's terrific Arabica coffee crop to port until recently. The arabicas are grown on the jungle slopes of Mt. Elgon at about 4500 feet above sea level. These conditions make for a very hard bean suitable for darker roasting as we have done here. Bugisu coffee has more body than most East African coffees. and somewhat lower acidity similar to a Sumatra. The mild cherry/dark chocolate flavor profile is unique through because of this coffees "dry method" processing that allows the coffee cherry to fully ripen dry on the tree. We also picked up a butterscotch finish. Enjoy!
Great Arabica coffee is grown throughout the world. We could not possibly roast and stock each and every one of them because the coffee would never be fresh! Freshness, careful micro roasting and cup integrity of the bean are our priorities.
