This coffee is from a small washing station called Revival which processes coffees delivered by 239 local farmers. This washing station is located at 1800 masl, and the varieties grown in this region are mainly SL28 and 34, very similar to what they grow on the Kenyan side of the border. The coffee cherries are delivered by the smallholders to a drying station, called the Sironko Coffee Yard, for improved and controlled drying. After delivery, the cherries are floated, sorted for lower quality cherries, fermented in barrels for 36 – 48 hours, then moved to the table for more sorting. They are dried carefully for 15 – 20 days.
The result in the cup is a bright, complex coffee with unique characteristics that showcase the potential of specialty micro-lots from Uganda!
