"JOHN THE BEAST" Uganda Mt. Elgon Bufumbo Organic Farmers Association AA Washed
Named for the legendary and Iconic Ugandan boxer of the 1980s, "John the Beast" is both beautiful and harsh at the same time. Beautiful in the sense that the cup is clean, bright, and full of sweetness, with black tea flavor notes abounding. Harsh ONLY in the sense that, roasted to a City Roast, it delivers a caffeine punch that will leave you awake and alert!
The "BOFA" is a group of smallholder coffee growers in the Mbale district of Uganda. The farms are all located on the slopes of Mt. Elgon, from 1800 to 2200 meters above sea level. The group is deeply involved in giving back to its members through the creation of a savings and credit cooperative to assist in producer funding. It also supports through its nursery bed program that ensures its members with ample coffee seedlings.
