Zinule Bulambuli – Uganda

Blackcurrant, cacao nibs, vanilla spice

  • Espresso

Bulambuli is a district in Eastern Uganda with so much potential. It is located near the Kenyan border on Mt. Elgon, with ideal terrain and climatic conditions for specialty coffee.

Our washed coffees have been named after an indigenous bird living in the Bulambuli forest. The name of this bird in Lugisu, the local dialect, is Zinule. We use it to refer to sweet, fragrant and intense washed coffees from Bulambuli. Bulambuli is a new washing station, built in 2021 in an area we find to have excellent coffees and potential.

The coffees are from altitudes around 2000 masl and are mainly of SL varieties. The cherries are delivered to the washing station. The coffee is pulped and fermented on-site after a thorough selection process and quality checks. These washed coffees are so far traditionally produced, meaning the parchment is fermented in tanks after pulping before being dried in a well-ventilated parabolic dryer.
