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. The name ‘Bukonzo Dream’ originates from the Bukonzo tribes-people of Uganda. They are friendly and welcoming people who dream of being able to provide better opportunities for each generation. The farmers have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and given the opportunity of producing a harvest which will give them a greater yield and ultimately a better return, they are willing to go extra lengths to ensure a fantastic crop.
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!
