There is an actual hint of a toasted almond flavor inside this wondrous bold and smooth African coffee when the beans are roasted and brewed correctly. It’s subtle, and it co-exists with hints of floral aroma and traces of earthy sweetness.
These are some seriously high-quality beans. They are bourbon and Blue Mountain varietals, certified organic, and also certified Rainforest Alliance. Grown atop Mount Elgon, a massive mountain that spans the border of Kenya and Uganda and is home to some of the best organic coffees in the world, these beans are cultivated in volcanic loam, handled, and washed in a way that unlocks their superior taste and mouthfeel.
Located up at 1800m elevation alongside the famous Sipi Falls waterfall, the beans are washed at what was Africa’s first-ever certified organic Sipi Falls Wet Mill. The wet mill enables its neighboring farming communities to centralize the washing of their organic beans and maximize profit for these farmers, while also recycling its wastewater and maintaining a large organic nursery for its participating farmers.
Flavor: Caramel, tropical fruit, raisin, plum.
