We are excited to welcome back a crowd favorite. This coffee comes from the Gamatui Community by Kawacom. Kawacom was started in Uganda in 1999. It helped build the Sipi Falls Washing station in the Eastern Part of the country, on Mt Elgon. Kawacom has been producing super high-quality naturally processed coffee for three years now. With a precise focus on the quality of their natural and honey processed coffees, they have been getting better and better each year.
This particular coffee shows an amazingly clean, clear fruit character with a lovely medium plus acidity. Every step along the way we have been encouraged by the amazing flavors and willingness to innovate with this project. We hope to continue with this project long-term. This natural processed coffee is dried on raised beds (but in a much thinner layer than is typical). The dried coffee is then hand-sorted for quality. This coffee has a soft, velvety body with notes of strawberry, grape candy, and apricot.
We are in love with this year's standard natural process lot. We also have two experimental processing lots we collaborated on this year - we can't wait to share them! Each experimental lot is over two years in the making and we are crazy excited to see them come to life. Special thanks to Tim Hill and the team at Atlantic Specialty and Kawacom for helping us with these three lots.
