We only receive deliveries of these coffee beans once per week, so you may need to wait up to a week for dispatch.

Unlike many of our other partnered roasters, Bean There typically offers the same selection of African single-origin beans year round. The Johannesburg-based roastery’s business model involves buying entire lots from the same handful of producers all year, which has led to meaningful, long-term relationships with partners and ensures fair compensation for producers and farm workers. This also means that Bean There coffee sales have a truly meaningful impact on the lives of the people who grow them. This makes it all the more exciting that Bean There has now added a new origin to its roster, for the first time in a decade: Uganda. 

We’ve only had a handful of Ugandan coffees on our shelves in the past, and none particularly recently. It’s fair to say that Uganda isn’t the first place to come to mind when one thinks of African single-origin coffee, but the East-African country actually offers near-perfect coffee growing conditions for specialty-grade Arabica. This particular coffee comes from a small community of farmers located in the mountainous Kapchorwa region. Interestingly, these farmers don’t send their harvest to any local washing station or mill, but instead process their coffee cherry themselves at home. In doing so, farmers have more exacting control over processing, ensuring a higher quality end-product for each of their individual harvests.

We hope you'll join us in trying this coffee, supporting our friends at Bean There, and, perhaps most importantly, supporting the Ugandan farmers who grew this coffee.

Bean There’s notes

“Nestled in the captivating foothills of Mount Elgon in the Kapchorwa region, we met the farmers of the Munarya community. Operating as a close-knit community of farmers cultivating coffee amidst volcanic soils, they are committed to the future of sustainable agriculture. We source our coffee from the Munarya community and pay them directly, ensuring a fair trade that keeps their business sustainable and ours meaningful.

“This single origin coffee has a malty chocolate aroma and gentle acidity, revealing a creamy shortbread flavour. This specialty coffee is optimally roasted in South Africa to deliver a taste as rich as the continent it comes from.”
