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. Uganda grows coffee over on the Western part of the country over by Congo in the towering Rwenzori Mountains, but we don't usually buy those beans. However, a group of farmers there have planted the 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 chocolate and traces of fruit (plum, cherry) To get this Yemen-like characteristics in a coffee for $11 is quite a surprise! And all while supporting the burgeoning coffee industry of Western Uganda.
