It's time to welcome Miwu from Uganda! Traditionally known for robusta, we've seen more industry partners turn their attention towards Uganda's Arabica producers in recent years. An origin to watch, Uganda's Arabica production is concentrated in two main areas. The east, bordering Kenya, primarily producing washed coffees. And the southwest, jutting up against Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, known for natural process coffees. Miwu is the combined micro lot of 71 smallholder farmers delivering to The Coffee Gardens Washing Station located on the slopes of Mt. Elgon in Uganda's Eastern province. A small processing station, The Gardens Washing Station, does remarkable work around the transparency and traceability of coffee while offering off-season training to farmers, including good agricultural practices, agroforestry, and financial management. All too tasty, with a baked sweetness, honey texture and currant finish, Miwu is one to keep an eye on!
