    Back to east Africa but a new origin - Uganda. This is a natural roasted by Rounton Coffee Roasters of North Yorkshire - Gods county!

    I noticed on their website that the guys at Rounton have actually visited the producers in Uganda - which really shows the very high levels of care and attention they put into their coffee. The @risecoffeebox team also visited Uganda recently too and this is a coffee through their excellent subscription service ?

    The coffee is from the Rwenzori Mountainous region. Kalingwe is a Village higher up in the foothills. I have cupped a few Ugandan naturals from this area before but weve no preconceptions and this smells very different.

    The aroma is excellent, I got plum and a note of golden ale, a hint of hops and clove. The flavour is tropical with yellow strawberry, orange blossom and mango as it cooled. Its very nicely balanced with citric acidity - very harmonious. Quite impressed by this coffee. Surprisingly sophisticated. I certainly wouldnt pick it as a Ugandan natural cupping it blind. Very nice work from producer @omwanicoffee and roaster and a very positive sign for the future of Ugandan specialty coffee production.

    86.75 translates to 4.5 stars!

More Details

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
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.
