Description

ABOUT THIS COFFEE

Kapchorwa is located on the high slopes of Mt. Elgon, an inactive volcano in Eastern Uganda, on the border with Kenya.

‘The Kapchorwa washing station’ was built in 2010 and today serves 907 producers who are organized into 35 producer organizations (POs). They can also be divided into those who live at high altitudes (1,800–2,200 masl), close to the station; and those who live at medium altitudes (1,650–1,800 masl), at the bottom of a steep cliff below the washing station.

The coffee is roasted to Medium Dark (City-Plus) and has Raisin, Brown Sugar and Peach flavors. Please enjoy our specialty coffee.

John’s Note

  • This is a limited offering so you better hurry! This coffee was selected based on a few factors; one I liked that the growing region is along the Kenyan border.  With Kenyan coffee being a bit pricey at the moment I wanted to experiment with another African coffee that may do the trick for Kenyan coffee lovers.  Secondly, this coffee boasts a high quality rating and I wanted to offer you something a bit special.  I roasted this coffee to a medium-dark and the silkiness remains but a pleasant molasses quality is noticeable.
  • Preparation Note:  This coffee is an outstanding pour-over and I set my drip machine to a little stronger setting because, you know…I like strong coffee (Go Navy!)
