Producers: Bukonzo Farmers Group, which is a part of the Bakonzo tribe. Many farmers have small farms, generally done by hand.
Region: Rwenzori- Found in South-West Uganda bordering the DR of Congo. The Rwenzori Mountain aka the Mountains of the Moon (pictured) is very important to this region. Its snow-capped peaks and glaciers produce many rivers for the region. High altitudes and bi-modal rainfall season works great in growing Arabica coffee.
Process: Hand-picked and dried on raised African beds in poly tunnels. Coffee is shade-grown under banana trees. Processed by the Kisinga Washing Station
Roast Level: Medium
Flavor: Medium-bodied with crisp lemon-lime acidity, honey sweetness and a black tea finish
Cupping Tasting Notes: 8/2021: Nice well-bodied cup with a black tea finish. It is not muddled with any cocoa like the Rwanda Blend coffee had. Moderate lemon/lime acidity with honey sweetness. If you enjoy Burundi or Rwanda coffee, you will enjoy this coffee.
Last year, the Uganda Rwenzori Natural was highlighted. Compared to the natural, this washed coffee has crisp acidity and tea-like body. It is comparable to a Rwanda or Burundi
