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 specialty 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 upheaval in Uganda over the past 40 years have meant this region has struggled to realize its full potential for specialty arabica production. Organisations such as Bukonzo Co-Operative are leading the way in realizing this potential and returning it to its status as a respected specialty 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.
