It's finally here! ROST Robusta espresso completes our espresso selection with an iron grip, bringing a stronger alternative to our 100% arabica espresso and 50/50 arabica robusta blend. In other words, it is a 100% robusta espresso made from naturally processed high-grown African robusta, which brings together fruitiness and sweetness in addition to the strong flavors typical of robusta.
Robusta comes from Ankole Coffee Producers Cooperative Union Ltd (ACPCU) in the mountainous region of Bunyaraguru and Katerera in southwestern Uganda. The cooperative focuses on enabling both ecologically and socially sustainable coffee cultivation by building and renovating community facilities, planting food plants to shade crops and developing the efficiency of organic farming, and even composting banana leaves and controlling pests with chili.
