Kikobero’s a real treat, giving you all the flavours of biscuits, figs and treacle – making it a perfect after-dinner brew. There’s always room for dessert, isn’t there?

Origin
Growing happily under indigenous shaded trees, this Ugandan coffee also shares its wonderful terroir with some friendly banana trees on the slopes of the magnificent Mount Elgon, which is packed with nutrient-dense volcanic soil. The coffee grows gradually with a little help from high altitudes and a humid gentle breeze.

Mount Elgon sits on the country’s eastern border, right next to its sibling country, Kenya. At 24million years old, it’s believed to be East Africa’s oldest volcano.

Washed process
Cherries are picked and placed in a floatation tank to select the ripe ones before discarding the rest. They’re then pulped and placed into fermentation tanks for 48 hours. The washed coffee is then placed on trays, distributed very evenly on a raised platform, where they’re hand-sorted by eradicating any sad-looking beans that may have sneaked their way out of the pulping machine. After sorting, these little gems are transported to be dried for a minimum of seven days, or until the desired moisture content is reached.

Nab a bag of this while you can, as Ugandan coffee is looking pretty spectacular in the specialty coffee industry, and it’s now being used in world-famous coffee competitions.

FAQs

Are your beans freshly roasted?

  • Yes! Our team of experts hand roast our beans regularly, in small batches, depending on current order volumes. This is done to maintain freshness and reduce waste.

Do you sell your coffee pre-ground?

  • All of our beans can be sold whole or ground for use with AeroPress, cafetieres, V60s and other dripper cones, filter coffee machines or moka pots. See our Grind Guide beneath the available grinds for more details.

Are your coffees organic?

  • We believe that most, if not all, of our coffees are organic, but it's expensive and difficult for small batch farmers to get certified.
