Uganda and Kenya Sourcing Trip 2015 For my fourth sourcing trip to Africa, I was invited to join a coffee-buying group sponsored by the Uganda Coffee Authority with the goal of promoting specialty coffee of Uganda. Our hosts, Crop to Cup Coffee, an east coast importer, had the task of organizing the trip ad keeping things on schedule.

Three roasters came up with an idea for how to leverage souring methodologies to have a greater impact on farming communities.
Bird Rock is a local roaster, which has all the trappings of a top notch cafe. They own a La Marzocco GB/5, offer multiple coffees with brew to order options on a V60 pour over bar, serve only freshly roasted coffee, have several high marks from Coffee Review, and appear to be sourcing some pretty good green coffee.
