The Essence of Mt Elgon: The Heart of Our Coffee Rum

The Essence of Mt Elgon: The Heart of Our Coffee Rum
ugisu people who nurture the coffee trees

At Innocent Spirits, we believe that exceptional spirits start with extraordinary ingredients. That’s why we’re proud to introduce you to the soul of our Coffee Rum: the finest single-origin African coffee sourced from the slopes of Mt Elgon in Uganda. Named after the Bugisu people who nurture the coffee trees with care, this exceptional brew embodies the essence of its origin in every sip.

A Taste of Tradition: The Bugisu Coffee Experience

Nestled amidst the majestic slopes of Mt Elgon, the Bugisu coffee beans thrive in the rich volcanic soil, bathed in the African sun and nourished by the gentle rains. It’s here that our journey begins, as we hand-select only the ripest cherries, harvested with precision by the Bugisu people. Their centuries-old traditions and meticulous craftsmanship ensure that each bean is imbued with the essence of the land.

Unveiling the Flavour Profile: A Symphony of Tastes

The result of this meticulous process? A dark, velvety brew with rich notes of dark chocolate, underscored by soft hints of stone fruit and brown sugar. When combined with our spirits, the coffee transforms, revealing a subtle toasted marshmallow flavour that dances on the palate. With its full-bodied sweetness and medium acidity, Bugisu coffee offers a sensory experience like no other.
