Robusta coffee can also have excellent taste - this is Ugandan proof of it!
Gorgeous Uganda Ngoma Robusta coffee with a unique flavor of cocoa, nuts, and a natural sweetness.
The crop is grown at a higher altitude than ٍRobusta coffee in other regions. This Robusta coffee is grown without any genetic manipulation but propagated strictly through rooted cuttings and “elite seed”, maintaining the purity of the species.
Uganda is considered the birthplace of Robusta Coffee and one of the largest producers of Robusta in the world. After Ethiopia, Uganda is the second largest coffee producer in Africa, accounting for 2.5 % of the world harvest.
This Robusta coffee is Uganda's indigenous crop and it grows naturally under the cover of banana trees in the rainforests near Lake Victoria. These Ugandan Robusta plants are some of the rarest naturally growing coffee anywhere on Earth.
Local farmers harvest ripe red Robusta berries by hand, which are later dried in the sun. This process is called "naturally sun-dried". Ngoma beans produce a full-bodied cup, with natural sweetness and very low acidity.
