About the bean

A unique coffee from eastern Uganda's Kapchorwa district, a region celebrated for its rugged and scenic landscape, nearby to the area's famed Sipi Falls - a series of three, very pretty, tall waterfalls - and the northern slopes of Mount Elgon - an extinct volcano, with the world's largest surface area, that first erupted more than 24 million years ago.

Unlike the bulk of this robusta-growing country, our Mount Elgon AA is a washed arabica with a medium to high body and brightness. Expect a good sweetness with notes of raisin and a resinous aroma. Creamy mouthfeel.

Roast recommendation: Medium to dark. Refer to our roasting guide here.
