Uganda Rwenzori Washed
Uganda Rwenzori Washed Espresso
There is a renaissance of using washed coffees in espresso as single origins. Clarity in the cup and good clean fruit doesn’t always follow in other processes. Personally, I just love variety in coffee, but that probably isn’t a big surprise.

Local/ Farm Info
This coffee comes to us via the Rwenzori Coffee Company, and Omwani. This is the sum of many smallholder farmers, with great processing. I have written a little more here, to save you from having to read the same words on 3 different products from the same mill. These are exciting times indeed for Ugandan coffee.
