This is our first roast of coffee from Uganda, and it is a special one. The Bukhanakwa is a remote farmer group in Mount Elgron, which is steeped in coffee tradition. The community has extremely good coffee, sometimes growing up to 2,100 MASL in rich volcanic soil. What makes this coffee even more special is the involvement of the Zukuka Bora Coffee project. It was set up to support the people of Mt Elgon in many different ways, and while coffee farmers are at the heart of the project, the profits are also used to support JENGA Community Development. JENGA operate a range of projects - including education sponsorship, clean water schemes, savings groups, health promotion and training, and wider farming support. We are delighted to play our small part and help support these amazing farmers and introduce them to our customers.
The interesting notes of lemon, lime, red grape skin and mars bar truly make this a one of a kind coffee that you'll want to go back to again and again.
