The Fields Uganda Mbata Coffee

The Fields is known as the adventurous coffee in our range and a key part of our forward-thinking desire for quality and innovation. This coffee represents our standing as one of the pioneers in the London coffee scene with its title a nod to our London Fields neighbourhood.

The adventurous badge offers us the chance to explore new approaches to processing, sustainability and experiment with some of our favourite producers and exporting partners.

This edition of The Fields marks our first coffee from Uganda and gives an insight into an origin that is rapidly improving its specialty coffee production. Where most coffee was previously lower grade commercial volume, new initiatives are promoting training in harvesting, processing and sustainability to produce higher quality coffee and improve livelihoods. This coffee is a prime example, with the Mbata community producing this alongside the social enterprise Agri Evolve.

Mbata is a village in the Rwenzori mountains sitting at 1700 metres above sea level. With most farmers generally working only 1 to 2 acres of land this is a combined community effort with cherries all delivered to a local buying point established by Agri Evolve. Here their fruit is weighed and sorted with farmers paid upfront. From there the cherries are transported to their washing station where they are floated, to separate any differences in ripeness and density, and then dried in protective poly-tunnels. This ensures a steady drying process and develops into a coffee rich in brown sugar and tropical sweetness.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
