The Background

Although Uganda is not as well known for coffee as countries like Ethiopian and Kenya, they still have some great beans to offer! Uganda actually produces a lot of coffee, the second most of any African country. The majority of the beans that grown in Uganda are Robusta beans, but some Arabica beans are also produced. These particular Ugandan coffee beans are Arabica, and grown in nutrient rich volcanic loam. Beans like these are reason to include Ugandan coffee in the discussion of high quality African coffees.

What makes Ugandan Bugisu Coffee special?

Ugandan coffee is typically expected to have a fairly light body and lack significant complexity. These beans, however, are not typical by any means. This Ugandan coffee has more body, and a number of factors contribute to make a complex cup. Notes of nut and chocolate are evident in aroma and taste. A bright wine-toned acidity adds a zest to the profile, which manages to come to smooth finish despite the lively acidity. Ugandan coffee deserves to be tried and this is a great place to start!
