I was looking forward to my next coffee from Barista On Duty, a Uganda Bugisu. I’ve had a handful of coffees from Uganda and all of them have been memorable. Plus, the beans were roasted with some tenderness, love and care by Barista On Duty, so I had a feeling that I was going to be in for a treat.
That feeling was confirmed by the aroma. It was a fruity aroma, loaded with berries. It seemed like I was about to pour a mix of blueberries and cranberries into my mouth, not coffee. There was a hint of nuttiness in the background that balanced it out…a little.
From the first sip, I knew that it was indeed a Mike kind of coffee. It exploded with berry flavor that I can best describe as sweet cranberry flavor. That was followed by a slight tartness and a nutty flavor in the backend.
It had a medium body, with a syrupy feel that lingered on my tongue.
What can I say I really loved this coffee. It earned an excellent rating of 4.25 on the Daily Shot Of Coffee scale. It’s perfect for right after Thanksgiving dinner or every day. I sure don’t need a holiday to drink this coffee.
