Sweet fragrance and aroma of panela, notes of sweetened black tea with an herbal finish, lime acidity, medium/heavy body with a soft creamy mouthfeel. Overall balanced and unique.
We feel that this coffee really shines for its sweetness and so performs best between a light-medium roast and a dark-medium roast. While the lime acidity is really nice, it does tend to disappear at deeper medium roast levels.
from 1800 to 2200 meters above sea, and mostly cultivate SL28 and SL14 varieties.
The group delivered cherries to the Buginyanya washing station nearby where coffee is pulped and fermented in water for 18 hours before being fully washed and dried. The resulting cup is clean, bright and full of sweetness!
The Bufumbo Organic Farmers Association has it’s headquarters in Mbale, and has developed a savings and credit cooperative organization to assist in producer funding. The BOFA also provides coffee seedlings to it’s members through the nursery bed project to give all members access to more plants.
Beyond coffee, BOFA promotes energy conservation by making charcoal briquettes from waste, and sharing information on the prevention of STDs and HIV in the community.

Yummy fragrance and aroma. Tasted good. Sweat black tea, herbal, sweet lime. Espresso, I am really interested in how it's going to taste.
