Uganda Engagi (Aug - Sep 2021)

Regular price $16.00

Uganda is one of the few countries in the world that has native coffee growing, most of which is Robusta. It is one of the largest coffee producer in the world, and coffee is an enormous part of Uganda's export economy. Though largely known for its Robusta, Uganda also produces Arabica, although it remains relatively small. The fertile soils, microclimates and terrain makes some parts of the country ideal for producing high quality Arabica beans. 

The growing regions in Uganda are not always well or clearly defined, but can be mainly grouped into the following regions: BugisuWest NileWestern Uganda, and Central Lowlands

Our coffee this month comes from the lands surrounding the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (a UNESCO-World Heritage Site). This is located in the South-Western region of Uganda, and contains very fertile volcanic soil. 

We taste notes of dried pineapplesa juicy mouthfeel and a light-medium body with a balanced acidity. 

As our #dYScover beans are roasted specially, and separately from the rest of our offerings, we only have limited quantities per month! If you have ever thought or wondered about specialty coffee from Uganda, do make sure you give this a try soon!

There are so many different types of coffee grown in various regions of the world, with each region tasting very distinct from one another. 

#dYScover, by Yong Seng Coffee, is our attempt at letting you experience high quality/specialty coffee from the various coffee-producing regions of the world. Read more about specialty coffee here!

Join us on this journey as we bring in coffee from different regions every month, as we explore the world of coffee together.

A taste of heritage

and fresh perspectives

Yong Seng Coffee specialises in Singapore's favourite - traditional Nanyang coffee, a.k.a. kopi (meaning coffee in Malay). Being the lifeblood of many Singaporeans, we have served our many blends of traditional kopi for over 40 years, in addition to a selection of dry-roasted coffee of various origins.

Today, embodying heritage with every bag, we strive to keep our family's legacy and Singapore's kopi culture alive, while continuously working to expand and refine our offerings to cater to your ever-evolving preferences.


Tried the Arabica Blend and it changed my perspective of white coffee. Ditch your 3-in-1 and brew your own coffee with Yong Seng this CB period.

I ordered all the 6 choices (of Drip Bag Coffee) to try. Arrived yesterday and tried the Signature Blend #1 this morning. Clear indication of roasted & packing dates on each packet. Fresh and full of aroma, highly recommended. Tks!
