This is a world class, super-tasty coffee. The tasting notes of Pear Muscavado and Coconut come through beautifully. Tasty as an espresso, cafetière or filter, with or without milk. The Fields is known as the adventurous coffee in the Climpson and Sons range and is a key part of their forward-thinking desire for quality and innovation. Here’s Climpson and Sons to tell you (much ) more about the process behind this amazing brew!

This edition of The Fields marks our first coffee from Uganda and gives an insight into an origin that is rapidly improving its specialty coffee production. Where most coffee was previously lower grade commercial volume, new initiatives are promoting training in harvesting, processing and sustainability to produce higher quality coffee and improve livelihoods. This coffee is a prime example, with the Mbata community producing this alongside the social enterprise Agri Evolve.
Mbata is a village in the Rwenzori mountains sitting at 1700 metres above sea level. With most farmers generally working only 1 to 2 acres of land this is a combined community effort with cherries all delivered to a local buying point established by Agri Evolve. Here their fruit is weighed and sorted with farmers paid upfront. From there the cherries are transported to their washing station where they are floated, to separate any differences in ripeness and density, and then dried in protective poly-tunnels. This ensures a steady drying process and develops into a coffee rich in brown sugar and tropical sweetness.
