Uganda Mt. Elgon
  • Uganda Mt. Elgon



    Light body with medium acidity, and an exceptional sweetness. Strong notes of  strawberry jam. 

    Grown on rich volcanic soils on the slopes of Mt. Elgon in Mbale, this Ugandan coffee goes through a washed process to give it the mild but bright, clean taste typically associated with washed African coffees. The varietals Nyasaland, SL14 and SL28 produce an exceptional sweetness lends itself well to the tasting note of strawberry.


    Our Partners at Dream Coffee work on the ground with a group of 200 small holder farmers that work under the Friends of Mother's Initiative (FMI). An initiative that prioritizes hiring women and supporting single mothers in the Mt. Elgon region from revenue generated by the areas main crop. Additionally, women recieve coffee farming training, with production methods certified by organic EU standards. 


    At Cannon, our efforts go towards paying more to the hardest working people in the coffee industry. The farmers. And we're proud to be working with Dream Coffee to achieve this mission.
