Coffee is indigenous to Uganda. Centuries ago, before coffee was known as a beverage, Ugandan warriors would chew wild coffee beans before going into battle which would stimulate them, give them courage and make them feel invincible.
Coffee exports from Indonesia, the third-largest grower of robusta beans used in instant drinks, are set to decline to a two-year low as increasing domestic consumption erodes supplies from a record harvest.
A mix of old and new. Espresso beverages will be served from a La Marzocco Linea PB, which is flanked by an additional Modbar steam module for added milk-steaming capacity in busy times. A La Marzocco Volcano Swift auto-dosing and tamping grinder is dedicated to Black Cat espresso, while two Roburs await the single-origin coffee of the moment and a decaf.
