    Roaster’s Notes
    This lot comes from the Yembek community, one of the highest elevation coffee producing regions in Uganda. Kawacom, a renowned Ugandan exporter, works closely with this community, consulting with growers to determine when the cherry selection is optimal for processing. The coffee undergoes rigorous processing, getting washed and mechanically dried over three weeks. The resulting coffee is pleasantly sweet, with a balancing, but subdued acidity.
