SKU UGANDORG

Starting at $6.25 / lb
As low as $5.25 / lb

This African coffee ranks right up there with the finest Kenyans. There are two kinds of African coffee in most people's cafe world: 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 is the first batch of green coffee beans my wife and I chose to roast and I am impressed. Excellent flavor! Go for a darker roast like the description recommends (not quite Full City). You won't be disappointed!

This coffee is amazing! I stopped it before it got to second crack. I definitely got the Brazil nut in the finish, but butterscotch was dominant in the cup. Nice snd sweet, with a buttery mouthfeel, as it danced on my tastebuds. One of my favorites!
