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’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 cocoa powder, molasses and cherry.
