Uganda has been a quiet coffee producing region in the past – many overlook these coffees because of a reputation for low acidity and flavor. Kawacom, a processing company started in 1999 in Uganda, is looking to change that reputation. Since their beginnings, they have invested in this region, Kapchorwa, home to some of the highest elevation coffee farms in the country. What results is producers devoted to quality with a processing station that matches their enthusiasm. Last year, this coffee stole our hearts, so we were excited to receive samples again this year, and were thrilled to see last season’s quality matched. The attention this coffee received through production and processing reveals itself as a juicy but restrained acidity, with a nice chocolatey finish that contributes to a coating mouthfeel. It’s a versatile coffee, but the complexity shines through as a black cup of drip; like its washed counterpart, this coffee is a great example of what good Ugandan coffee tastes like.
