As a Pour over, this cup is to be remembered. Straight on fruitiness, oranges, sweet grapes, hint of woodsiness & a balanced citrus acidity. Sweet juicy grapes with a dash of Port red wine as a finish would be an accurate way to describe this coffee.
As an Espresso, this shot is outstandingly similar to a Port wine. The aromas of orange zest and sweet grapes perfumes off its crema as a subtle warming smell and hint of woodsiness seals the overall flavour perception and experience like a warm body. Sweet grapes, Citrus, Woodsy and Memorable. Great as a winey finish.
Area on the slopes of Mt Elgon in the Bugisu sub-region in Eastern Uganda. Enriched in the soils of high altitude & rich rainfall, this lot is spoilt for resources and room for growth. Resourcefulness & quality of the plant is now up to the farmer's decision to process it through natural or wet processed means. Rich soil & vanguard longitudinal growth of crops with intercropping vegetation helps with the balance in the environment and nutritional balance, leading to an overall more nutritious & delicious coffee as no element of malnutrition in a certain area of bean and flavour development is restricted.
