 THE STORY BEHIND

Kinone is a single micro washing station run by Bukonzo Organic Farmers Co-operative Union. Founded in 2009, 36 micro washing stations nestled in this pristine green mountainous region contribute to cooperative's total crop. The area's fertile soil is famed for producing some astounding coffees and this one is no exception.

Situated at the feet of the Rwenzori mountains just north of Lake George, the region around Kasese has excellent conditions for speciality Arabica production with some of the highest altitude in Uganda, fertile soil and plentiful rainfall. However widespread poverty and a lack of infrastructure, as well as the political upheavel in Uganda over the past 40 years has meant this region has struggled to realise its full potential for speciality arabica production. Organisations such as Bukonzo Co-Operative are leading the way in realising this potential and returning it to its status as a respected speciality arabica producing region in Uganda.

This is the first Ugandan washed lot we have ever stocked!
Usually with washed SL28 you expect florals and light and fruity but instead you get a mild, balanced cup that leads with raspberry and a mandarin marmalade with citric acidity and a nice sugarcane-like sweetness.
