Working with James from Omwani Coffee Co., we are able to bring you this exciting brand new harvest Microlot coffee from the Kalingwe region in Uganda. At the start of the 2019/20 harvest, through the use of Donkeys, the coffee cherries are brought down to the main processing area at Kisinga, under the watchful eye of lead farmer, Mbusa Julius. By collecting the cherry rather than as processed green bean, the value added to their coffee is huge, and it shows! It also adds incentive to the farmers when picking and selecting ripe coffees as they can achieve higher prices – an important part of the Salford Roasters story.
The taste notes are incredible, with strawberry coming to the fore, and a hit of passion fruit and peach, before the pleasant syrupy aftertaste. Enjoy!
