NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Uganda Mt. Elgon Manafwa 2018

Country of Origin: Uganda
Uganda Mt. Elgon Manafwa 2018
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
Located in the Eastern province, Manafwa is one of the seven Districts in the large Mt. Elgon region, home to most of Uganda's best Arabica coffee (they produce an excellent Robusta as well). Second in E. Africa after Ethiopia, Uganda is the world's eight largest coffee producer, and has a bustling agricultural sector. High elevations, lush rainforest and conscientious producers make it a player with a huge upside.
Our recent faves from Mt. Elgon have been from Kapchorwa district, but this Manafwa is a winner, too. The Manafwa Washing Station handles about 300 smallholder farms and has a 95% red cherry policy, assuring highest quality rendering of SL14 and SL28 varietals (originally developed in Kenya in the 1930s by Scott Laboratories. Elevations are between 1600-1800 meters.
Solid cup notes of almond, dark chocolate and dried apricot abound in this light-medium roast profile. We like it best as a pourover/drip.

Andrea Spella and Badbeard
Barista extraordinaire Andrea Spella poses with Badbeard outside the Spella Cafe in downtown Portland.
"...this morning I arose early to grind, press, and sample the El Salvadoran Women's Brew. Wow, what an aromatic and delicious treat! I first noticed a lack of offensive acidity (which is why I did not drink coffee for years), a delicacy and round impression on the palate, wonderful fruitiness, and complex flavors. This coffee reminded me of feminine-style red wines, with understated elegance, finesse, and polish. Some coffees are more about the flavor of roasting, almost a charcoal taste, but this was much more subtle and appealing to me. Tomorrow I will try the Ethiopian selection and let you know what I think. You are definitely on to something special with your coffees. "
