Uganda - Gibuzale
The Gibuzale region is in the eastern part of Uganda, near the border with Kenya. The small farms here are situated on the slopes of the Mt. Elgon, an inactive volcano. This coffee is sourced from over 50 small farms in this region. Each farmer, on average, maintains about 950 trees over a 2 - 2.5 acre plot. To help provide extra shade for the coffee, the farmers here intercrop with other cash crops such as banana.
We roast all of our coffees just past first crack, to preserve the natural flavors that come from where and how the coffee was grown.
In this coffee, you can expect orange spice aroma, higher acidity, and tasting notes of red apple, caramel, and dried fig.
