Although Uganda has been growing Arabica coffee for over 100 years, Uganda is more often associated with Robusta, which is indigenous to the area. In fact Uganda is the 7th largest coffee producer in the world. Most Ugandan coffee is grown on small farms.  

Bugisu is a region in Eastern Uganda and coffee there is grown at moderately high elevations (1,300 to 2,600 meters) on the slopes of Mount Elgon. This makes it a hard bean, very suitable for darker roasting.  Bugisu coffee has more body than most other East African coffees, and somewhat lower acidity. It seems more reminiscent of a good Sulawesi coffee than a coffee grown in view of neighbouring Kenya. Perhaps it is that individualistic quality that drew us to it, this Bugisu coffee is difficult to compare with others. It is African, but it's not. It's Indonesian, but it's not. We think it's just downright good. It's got a rich body with a buttery texture, mild acidity and a dry finish, like a good red wine. We really enjoy the notes of baker's chocolate, raisin and cherry.
