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 Rwenzori Natural Process

Country of Origin: Uganda
Uganda Rwenzori Natural Process
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
Uganda shares topographic assets and borders with many of the prime East African coffee origin countries: Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Congo,
so it should be no surprise that it has java bona fides.The eastern part of the country is better-known for specialty-grade washed coffees in the
Mt. Elgon/Sipi Falls region. The Rwenzori Mountain Range (famously known as the Mountains of the Moon) stretch 120km along Western Uganda bordering the
Democratic Republic of Congo. The magnificent snow-capped peaks and the glaciers produce many rivers. The high altitude, fertile soils and plentiful
rainfall provide perfect conditions for growing Arabica. Here, coffee is grown under the shade of banana trees. Farmers also produce cassava, maize,
beans and groundnuts for local consumption and additional income.
This Rwenzori Natural was produced at Kisinga Washing Station which started operations in 2016. This lot was hand-picked by the Bukonzo Farmers Group
in the Kasese District. Later the coffee was dried on raised African beds in poly tunnels. The Bukonzo Farmers Group is comprised of people who are
members of the Bakonzo tribe. Farms tend to be small averaging only about 2 hectares. The work on these farms is generally done by hand. Farmers work
ogether to process and market their coffee, an approach known as “share farming”. Working as a united group has helped to improve processing and
increase quality control.
Like most of our E. African natural process coffee, we're thinking pourover is best and roasting it on the lighter side of medium to accentuate the prominent grape, winey and raspberry note.
The body is medium-heavy, unusual for natural process, with a long finish.

New arrivals streaming in... As the PLAGUE wears us all down at times, roasting is a salve for my spirit, and new crop arrivals are fun to share. Ethiopia, our favorite of all origins, is still behind the production and shipping curves by a couple months in general. We just got one of our faves of recent years, a washed ...more
good to the last bean
We are such perfectionists we roast one bean at a time for the ultimate coffee experience! (OK, not really)
"I am one of the lucky winners of 4 lbs. of coffee from the Portland Taiko benefit banquet. The coffee is so good that the first batch is gone and I am ready for more."
