Onyx Coffee Lab - Uganda Long Miles Lunar Station Natural - 10 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

This out-of-this-world offering comes to us by way of Long Miles Coffee. With the hard-earned knowledge they've gleaned from years of work in Burundi, they ventured into the Rwenzori Mountains to develop a new project in this little explored producing country. This natural is produced with the production team from Long Miles Burundi, in collaboration with the producers of this area. The Lunar Station name draws inspiration from the Rwenzori Mountains, which are colloquially named Mountains of the Moon after the dramatic topography and snow capped mountains found in the heart of Africa.

This coffee came about through a partnership with Long Miles Coffee, whom we have partnered with for a few years. We source for not only stunning Burundi Coffees from them, but also for the most energetic coffee antidotes from Ben Carlson. Read Ben's description below for more info on this coffee.

Long Miles Coffee searched for where to grow after 10 years of producing some of East Africa’s best coffee in the small landlocked country of Burundi. Largely unknown for specialty coffee, Uganda seemed, at best, a commercial option for Robusta or poorly-processed Mount Elgon coffee in the east of the country. Starting in 2018 Ben Carlson, co-founder of LMC, set out to explore why coffee was so average in a country of great altitude and deep history of coffee production. A four year journey led Ben and the LMC team to land on the little known and quite possibly finest growing location in the world, Western Uganda’s Rwenzori Mountains. [These] Mountains stretch from the hot Western Uganda town of Kasese up to Fort Portal. This mountain range is called the Mountains of the Moon because of its awe inspiring snow capped peaks in the midst of the heart of Africa. These daunting peeks separate Uganda from DR Congo. Micro-climates created through the Rwenzori forest reserve and the valleys and crevices of the mountains create daily cloud cover that the early morning sun breaks through creating excellent growing conditions for the SL verities on the mountain. The Rwenzori Mountains and its farming community have largely been forgotten or ignored by it's government, NGO’s and coffee exporters. The result of this is poor farming practices, little education on agronomy, and little in the way of speciality coffee being tasted from this mountain range.

MORE COFFEES FROM THIS ROASTER

It was some years ago that we Jon and Andrea, began to dream of serving a sweet, black cup of coffee to our customers in Arkansas. This coffee, the mythical bridge between the blended chocolate drink and a strong black cup, needed to combine the delicate flavors only present when coffee is grown and processed with love and care, roasted to enhance but not mask flavor, and brewed to highlight those flavors. This is how Onyx Coffee Lab was born in October of 2012.

Our mission is pretty simple: to source and serve the best coffees in the world. Perhaps this is really ambitious, but we believe it’s pretty simple. Customers want to taste differences in coffee, not only on the black coffee level, but also when espresso and milk are poured together, and on another level, when coffee is treated as a culinary item and paired with beverages and food items that you wouldn’t expect.

The best business practice that Onyx Coffee Lab has and strives to continue is to be an owner-driven business. The difference between an owner run café, restaurant, roaster, retail shop, and so on is almost always evident in customer service, quality of product and atmosphere. It’s no easy task to translate passion for award winning coffee into a well-run business. We think it’s a carefully constructed balance of demand for excellence, passion, heart, and recognizing when we need someone to step into a leadership role. Every cup of freshly roasted coffee from Onyx has been carefully curated by us- from the very beginning with the farmer, through the roastery and to our customers. Without all of those hands, we are nothing, and we are there over each step in the process, demanding, sipping, loving, encouraging, instructing. We are Onyx Coffee Lab.
