Uganda coffee is our best selling bean. We buy the washed process beans grown in Eastern Uganda and sell it in Bear Blend, Artist's Blend, Breakfast Blend, and Animated Espresso. This region is known as Bugiso and has a subregion of Sipi Falls down by Victoria Falls. However, a group of farmers there have planted the SL-14 and SL-28 Kenya coffee trees and then after picking the coffee, decided to follow the Ethiopia processing method and dry the beans under the sun. We were skeptical, but sampled it, and couldn't believe how good it turned out!
It's like a poor man's Yemen. You get that bready, malty flavor, along with bitter herbal and chocolate and tangy fruit (plum, lime, banana) To get this Yemen-like characteristics in a coffee for $11 is quite a surprise! And all while supporting the burgeoning coffee industry of Uganda.
