I’m just back from Durban. And, as per usual, I trek out to Hillcrest with for one reason and one reason only: Lineage Coffee.
Don’t get me wrong, Hillcrest is a beautiful part of KZN. I’d love to live there. With my lovely wife. 2 kids. A dog. And a white picket fence.
But with limited time I needed to make careful decisions about how to spend it. And Lineage Coffee is the only thing that makes sense to me in that part of the world.
I picked up 3 bags. I’ll tell you about one today (I want to keep you in suspense). The Uganda Sipi Falls.
According to the pack, it was roasted on the 22nd December. It’s from Uganda, the Mt. Elgin Region in Eastern Uganda. From the Sipi Falls farm. It was hand picked, fully washed & sun dried on African raised beds at an altitude of 1,500 – 2,500 MASL. And was harvested from August – December 2014.
I could say it has a lemony acidity, creamy mouthfeel and caramel accents. But my palate isn’t that refined as yet.
So I’ll just say this: it tastes fucking awesome.
