About this Coffee
This coffee is produced by Dison Kareng of Kapchorwa town on the Eastern slopes of Mount Elgon. Dison has been working with a church-based project focusing on disadvantaged children and raising funds though marketing Kapchorwa coffee abroad. After experimenting with various processing methods, he developed the anaerobic fermentation as his speciality and went into independent production. He is working with a group of 15 farmers from Masira village, at an altitude of 1950 - 2050 m.a.s.l. They are small-hold farmers with plantations of around 1 acre and 1000 trees each. The varietal in this area is predominantly SL 14 and 28. From the remote farms Dison transports the cherries to his compound in Kapchorwa town, where he ferments them in air-tight containers and then sun-dries them. The result is an amazingly rich and fruity coffee that recently won the 1st prize in the cupping competition organized by the British High Commission in Uganda for the UK Market.
A festive bouquet of flavours!
We cupped this coffee during our Rehm x Sprout collab at World of Coffee Athens in 2023. We were amazed by the full fruity flavours paired with a pleasant funkiness of this coffee.
Expect a cup with a Milka Chocolate Bar body with sticky prune & plummy notes with a boozy Glühwein finish.
