Ethiopia & Uganda Two Stories Blend Coffee

Great Taste Awards 2020 - 3 Star Winner

Two Stories was created to show off the wild side of coffee: a blend with funk and personality, designed to push the limits of what coffee can be.

60p from each kilo sold goes directly to the ACE2030 project in Uganda’s Rwenzori mountains.

'The Birthplace of Coffee' and the new kid on the specialty scene - Ethiopia and Uganda are two of the best places to turn for delicious, funky coffees. 

Rocko Mountain Reserve is a collection of coffees from Ethiopia's Godeo Zone, produced by smallholder farmers. 

Ibanda is a village in Uganda's Kasese District, in one of the Rwenzori Mountains' many valleys. Much like in Ethiopia, its climate and altitude are the perfect place for growing great coffee.

From the Great Taste Award judges: "A real mouthful of flavours: whisky and blueberry; fruity, rich and smooth with just a hint of balanced acidity. Beautifully smooth and easy to drink and equally good with a touch of milk, bringing out even more of the boozy notes".

The natural process requires skill and attention to get right. The ripe coffee cherry is picked and left out to ferment in the sun,  turned regularly so that no mould grows. The enzymatic reactions that occur here sink right into the seed (or bean), and leave you with a coffee that's full of funkiness and complexity. 

The process historically was common in places with less water available, but you'll see it all over the world these days, in producer's quests to find wild results in their lots.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
