This coffee is the first Uganda we purchased thus far. We lowered our price to make daily consumption possible. We brought this delicate coffee into Singapore with our coffee roaster friend to share how this amazing coffee around. This coffee scored 81.25. Uganda taste profile is close to Tanzania, Kenya, and Rwanda but they are often forgotten. Since 2016 coffee roasters from Australia, Korean and US had been building a relationship with producers. Coffees from Uganda were sent in for World Barista Championships.

Bugisu Washed Arabica is the most renowned of the Ugandan Arabicas. Grown in and around Mbale, they compare very favourably with other East African high grown coffees. The crop is grown on the slopes of Elgon mountain range in three distinct areas, namely the Mbale, Sironko, and Kapchorwa Districts, and is thus found at varying altitudes, ranging from 1300 metres in the South, climbing up to
1900 metres in the Central and Northern Districts. The Bugisu crop is intercropped alongside other crops on the 'kabanjja'. The area of the kabanjja under cultivation for Arabica averages 0.36 hectares, with an average yield of approximately 600kgs per hectare. The harvest season starts in September, completing around February each year. The population of the Mbale district is over 90% rural, with the community primarily supported by agriculture. Apart from coffee the region is also known for maize and vegetables.
