Uganda Bugisu is a rare gem among specialty coffees! Grown along the slopes of Mount Elgon, eastern Uganda is favored with excellent arabica beans, creating a complex combination of chocolate, plum and raisin flavors. You’ll simply want to savor each sip!
This hidden jewel is unlike most African coffees as the Bugisu region exudes an earthiness that is typical of an Indonesian profile, vs the traditional flavors of many African coffees.
The Full City roast level is recommended to truly appreciate the uniqueness of this single origin coffee, although we are always happy to custom-roast your coffee specifically to your tastes! Several customers enjoy the complexity of the Uganda Bugisu at a slight darker Viennese Roast, as the roast flavors are being introduced to the profile, along with the mild earthiness indicative of this bean. The Uganda Bugisu is so interesting, you just might want to try two roast levels and see for yourself!
