Story

In the rearview mirror of last year, we had a chance to spend some time, thoughts, and tastes on Limited Releases that delighted the roastery. To begin this year, the spotlight shines on a very special coffee from Uganda, grown high up on an extinct volcanic mountain.

The smell of these raw beans was outstandingly sweet - like rainbow skittles and young wine. Another esteemed roaster noted that this coffee was “a peach to roast” and we agree. With such a highly grown dense bean, we calibrated our roasting road map to arrive at the right place at the right time and couldn’t be happier where we found ourselves at the roast’s finish. This Ugandan coffee is a wonderful coffee bursting with a sweetness reminiscent of a green apple jolly rancher, blackberry jam, and raspberry juice. To say it is divine is the understatement of the year...so far.

Delicious, delicate and thought-provoking. A coffee to serve in the afternoon or at an intense book club.
