About the coffee
The farmers of Wugar Kanyenye Cooperative grow their coffee in Uganda at an altitude of 1800 meters. Coffee from Uganda has a strong flavor of its own that sets it apart from the somewhat less intense coffees from its neighboring countries. This coffee is a washed SL28 variety that stands out especially for its broad leaves with copper-colored tips, large beans, and an exceptionally complex flavor profile with a very high quality.
The cherries are sorted before being pitted. They are then fermented for 12 to 18 hours before being washed. They are then dried 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.
