Tasting notes: Owemba is versatile. It has interlayered dark chocolate and dried fruit notes with medium body and acidity. Manual brew methods highlight the fruit tones and amplify the acidity while cold brew brings forward the dark chocolate and the sweetness.
SPECIAL NOTE: Climate change continues to hit farmers around the world hard. Floods caused by unusual rain patterns have severely damaged many farmers in Western Uganda and Congo earlier this year. Bukonzo Joint Cooperative Union (BJCU) from Western Uganda, the growers behind this coffee, is among the affected. They lost a significant amount of their harvest as well as essential coffee processing equipment.
Boon Boona and Atlas Coffee decided to donate $1 for every pound of BJCU green coffee they buy. In other words, the more Owemba you buy, the more funds we can send back to BJCU to assist with their recovery efforts.
