Uganda Grade A Mt Elgon

SKU UGANMTELGON

Starting at $6.00 / lb
As low as $4.25 / lb

This African coffee ranks right up there with the finest Kenyans. There are two kinds of African coffee in most people's cafeworld: Ethiopian and Kenyan. And while these countries produce some of the world's best known and loved coffees, venturing to other borders can produce wonderful results. This Uganda is just such a find. Its aroma is darker than an Ethiopian with a touch of Brazil nut that you can taste in the cup, but sweet and mild, and boasting a deep, earthy, woody mouthfeel. The body of the cup is fairly light, like most African coffees, but the flavor is surprisingly rich, with dark chocolate and delicious Brazil nut flavor dominating.

Roast it darker than you would a Kenyan, but not quite Full City. The complexity will be there, but the sugars won't really develop until later in the roast.

This was the first Uganda that I have tried. Upon first tasting it after the first roast, I thought that this is really nice. Then, after about 3 more roasts, I reordered more because it was consistently great. I'd give it a 4.5 on a 5 point scale and would recommend it. It has good body and a rounded, nice taste. Phil

My mom and I used to buy Uganda green coffee beans in lass Vegas and was by far best coffee ever, I miss it so much and wish I still had it. She would roast the beans in a cast iron skillet each morning and it was the best.
