We first came across this roaster back in Christmas 2020 when we saw that they too had sourced from our favourite coffee producing region, the Rwenzori Mountains in Western Uganda. Years later and they are still supporting the farmers there, and work closely with the local area of Hull to supply delicious speciality coffee to coffee shops.
Hand picked and sorted, only the ripe coffee cherries make it to the Rwenzori wash plant where the coffee is wet milled and left to sun dry. This process allows some of the remaining coffee cherry mucilage to impart further moisture and acids into the beans than standard natural processing and sets this origin apart from any other we've ever encountered.
We had to tear up the roasting rule book with this coffee and start again from scratch due to its unique freshness, moisture content and sugar availability. The result is a boozy strawberry celebration of exploding summer fruits delivered with a caramel sweetness. Perfect for filter or pourover but also a unique and rewarding experience on espresso when dialled in right.

Try this is a filter and you'll get the sweetest of strawberry notes coming through.
