    I haven't had that much Ugandan coffee, and really what I've had hasn't been that great. But I'd heard good things about Bell Lane, and they had this for sale, so I had to give it a shot!

    I was taken aback when I opened this bag of coffee - it's a very unique aroma...but I had just been to the British store a few months before and had a good beat on it. 100% smells like Chocolate Weetabix.

    There's definitely wheat/fresh bread in a shot of espresso here, but a lot of other things going on with it - tobacco and blackberry jam up front, and a blueberry finish. It's a very fun shot of espresso, probably not my first pick to drink every day.

    Where I think it really shines is as an iced Americano. The fruity notes become more clear, and it's really delicious.

More Details

Roast Level: Medium
Medium roast coffee balances the beans' natural flavors and the roasting process, providing a well-rounded taste profile. When selecting a medium roast, look for a balance of acidity and sweetness, with caramel, nuts, and chocolate notes and a medium body.
Bean Source Country: Uganda
Grown across multiple regions, including the prominent Mount Elgon and the Rwenzori Mountains, Ugandan coffee typically features a full-bodied and well-rounded taste with a pleasant balance of acidity and sweetness. The beans showcase unique notes of dark chocolate, tropical fruits, and citrus alongside earthy and floral undertones. Ugandan coffees have a reputation for being less acidic than others from Africa.
Espresso
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
