tasting notes: cacao-fruit nectar, banana, and cream cheese
In the town of Kasese, near the landmark Semuliki Forest within Uganda’s rainy, tropical Rwrenzururu subregion, a registered social enterprise called Latitude Trade Company, Ltd. sources wet cacao beans from over 4500 smallholder farmers. Latitude ferments each farmer’s harvest in boxes built of local eucalyptus, then blends the many farms’ beans together post-fermentation and drying, thereby creating a uniform, consistently excellent product.
Nate enjoys the characteristic natural fruitiness of Semuliki Forest cocoa, and roasts this batch to accentuate the beans’ tropical punch. We taste notes of cacao-fruit nectar, banana, and cream cheese.
