The Story

What really matters to us is great coffee. And what we celebrate here is great Uganda coffee; this lot is from Mount Elgon, the premier growing region of washed and organic arabica coffees. We don't see Uganda lots this spot on that often—the transit is long and difficult. So taking arrival of a batch this impressive is a treat; we tasted it, and we liked it (to be honest, we loved it).
