Uganda has been regarded similarly to India, Mexico and Peru - historically used as a blender.

Many coffee brands often disregard or overlook Uganda's exceptional quality single-origin coffee.

That's unfair.

All countries that grow coffee have the potential to produce high-quality coffee, and Uganda is not an exception.

As a grower of considerable volumes in robusta - Uganda also produces arabica coffees of various grades, including many fine qualities.

The most exciting prospect in the last decade is Uganda's rate of improvement in their arabica coffees, outpacing the entire global coffee industry.

What we love most about Uganda arabica are low, brooding, chewy acid levels with fruity twists.

It's hard to describe other than Moorish.

Ugandan coffees make an excellent choice for espresso with earthy tones, spicy notes and fruit elements combining for delicious complexity.

Ugandan coffees can be intense - they offer rich notes of nut, plum and dark cocoa.

But there's something rather appealing about the earthy, herbal and spicy notes that many find surprisingly delicious.

This lot is from the Bugisu region and is AA grade.

Our Ugandan Single-origin has bold tastes of cocoa, black currant and stewed fruits.

Powerful and exotic.

Tips - Uganda coffees are grown at relatively high altitudes but not the same levels as Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda or Tanzania.
As such, they present more as a medium-density coffee, not unlike South American origins such as Colombia or Peru.
We recommend chasing the finest grind you can achieve with Uganda, ensuring that you do not choke or over-extract the coffee.
For black brews, try opening up the grind or lowering the dose a fraction to achieve a more open shot.
Milk or dairy alternative brews might be best served as tight or double-ristretto -style extractions containing higher levels of solids.

How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.

    Good coffee.

    This coffee had a nice flavor but was not fruity enough for me. Good coffee though and deserving of 4 stars.
