About the coffee
The farmers of the Wugar Kanyenye Cooperative grow their coffee in Uganda at an altitude of 1800 metres. Coffee from Uganda has a strong flavour of its own that sets it apart from the somewhat less intense coffees from its neighbouring countries. This coffee is a washed SL28 variety that stands out especially for its broad leaves with copper-coloured tips, large beans as well as an exceptionally complex flavour profile with a very high quality.
The cherries are sorted before they are pitted. They are then fermented for 12 to 18 hours before being washed. After, they are then left to dry on drying tables for 8- 21 days and turned regularly to prevent them from fermenting too much or rotting.
The slightly tart stone fruit meets sweet white chocolate and is accompanied by a bitter note from the green tea.
