Uganda Bugisu

Uganda Bugisu

Ugandan coffee is not your “typical African” mug of sweet fruity acidic tones.  It is low acid, even mildly earthy and bold tasting.  You will have a rich mug of coffee with raisin cookie, figs, brown sugar, baker's cocoa. It's one of my favorite origins to support, and here's why:

This Bugisu co-op is an organic certified coffee in Uganda with the most consistent quality control that I have found, and it's also Rainforest Alliance Certified besides!  These beans are grown near a town called Sipi Falls, which is near Victoria Falls and several other waterfalls — one of the most beautiful places in the world.  Almost all of Uganda is suitable to growing coffee, but the Ugandan people need our support to improve their processing mills, afford certifications, and attract larger buyers so that their industry can continue to grow and get better reputations in the industry.  Supporting this co-op’s efforts is essentially supporting all of Ugandan’s specialty coffee industry, and every year this crop tastes better and gets bigger.  It’s a mug of coffee you can really be happy about. It now has Organic, Utz, Shade Grown, and Rain Forest Alliance Certifications!


* Coffee offered as organic has organic certification from the farm or coop. That means organic farming practices were used.  At White Blossom Coffee Co. we do not offer our coffee as certified organic because of the added expense of having our roaster certified by the USDA. Therefore we can not list our coffee as "certified organic". The important factor is the non-use of pesticides and fertilizers during coffee production.
