Uganda Coffee Beans

Most coffee grown in Uganda is of the varietal Robusta (Coffea canephora var. robusta). Also grown in Uganda is the Arabica cultivar Bugishu (Coffea arabica var. bugishu), which is grown near Sipi Falls on the western slopes of Mt. Elgon, one of Uganda’s largest mountains.

A good brewed cup of Bugishu coffee exhibits the desirably winey acidity of a fine East African coffee.

Generally speaking, the lower complexity and lighter body of Ugandan coffees makes them generally less distinguished than the finer coffees of Zimbabwe, Tanzania, or Kenya.
