About Ugandan Mount Elgon Coffee
Our grade A Uganda coffee comes from Uganda’s Kapchorwa district on the eastern border of neighboring Kenya. This is a high grown lot of washed, 100% shade canopy, mixed varietal arabica coffee. In the cup our Uganda Kapchorwa coffee is spicy with a citrusy acid, good body and some nice light earthy and woody notes—very good and also different than Kenya and other African coffees.
This Uganda coffee is grown by a group of small farm holders within the region. These farmers share access to a wealth of growing and processing resources including four greenhouses, an arabica nursery for adolescent saplings, and a washing station with eco-pulping capabilities. Banana trees grow alongside the coffee, contributing to the 100% natural shade canopy. Almost a thousand individual farmers contribute to the overall lot. Each manages their own 1.0 hectare farm and is responsible for the production of about 1,000 arabica trees.
The Teesside Coffee Company are a Micro-Roastery based in Redcar in Teesside.
We roast 100% ARABICA BEANS, that are responsibly sourced.
Our coffee is Small-Batch Roasted in our 1kg Drum Roaster called Jack (think magic beans!)
Small-batch Roasting ensures the end product is of the finest quality and as we roast small amounts at a time it means the coffee available to purchase is very very fresh!
We sell Whole Beans, ground for ESPRESSO or FILTER. We also offer Green Beans if you prefer to roast your own.
