A truly exceptional coffee produced by the Bukonzo Union Cooperative (BOCU). The cooperative is committed to sustainable coffe production in Uganda and consists of over 1900 smallholder farmers (1 - 1.5 ha), and the majority of whom are women. Additionally the union has invested in numerous social programs and technical training for its members and continues to push for better coffee production. These include establishing shade trees throughout their farms, which allows coffee to be shielded from the sun; buiding terraces and planting ground cover crops to help manage soil nutrient content/erosion. This outstanding coffee is washed at indivudual micro washing stations and each batch can be traced directly to a single one of these micro washing stations!
A gutsy, full bodied coffee which we've roasted this one to just ahead of the second crack to draw out the complex, sweet, fruity flavours of apricot and cocoa. It continues through to long, deep finish of dried winter fruits
