Endiro Coffee Review

Espresso Bear


Endiro Coffee has been making waves in the coffee industry, and it’s not hard to see why. I first discovered their Uganda Bududa Bukalasi Coffee while browsing through the shelves of Trader Joe’s in Chicago. The bold and vibrant packaging caught my attention, but what drew me in was the promise of high-quality coffee at an unbeatable price of $9 for about 12oz. After trying it, I knew I had found my new favorite go-to for daily espresso.

But Endiro Coffee is more than just a roastery. Their mission is to end child vulnerability globally through coffee and its people. They believe that coffee can be a powerful tool for positive change and are committed to using it to make a difference in the world. Since their founding in 2011, Endiro Coffee has supported various compassion and transformation projects and is committed to continuing this practice.

Their vision is to come together with God, one another, and their customers to make the world a better place. They believe in the power of hospitality, conversation, collaboration, and community to brew all the good they can. And they are constantly working to reinvent how they engage in the coffee business at every level, so everything they do is positive and transformational.

The Review

I would like to share my personal experience of tasting their coffee beans as espresso. It’s worth noting that while some people prefer lighter roasts for filter brewing, others, like myself, prefer medium to darker roasts for espresso. It’s important to understand that flavor profiles can vary, and everyone has unique taste preferences. For more information on this topic, you can read about flavor profiles, but ultimately, it comes down to personal taste.

Espresso and Beans

Endiro Coffee’s Uganda Bududa Bukalasi Coffee is a standout for me. The beans are sourced directly from the Bukalasi region in Uganda and are roasted to perfection at Endiro’s nearby cafe and roastery. The result is a rich and complex flavor with notes of dark chocolate and a hint of fruitiness. The freshness and quality of this coffee are undeniable, and getting fresh coffee from a local roaster is a great way to save money on incredible coffee.

But Endiro Coffee’s impact extends far beyond the quality of its coffee. They are committed to engaging the people and communities wherever they source, process, or sell coffee in holistically transformative ways. Their mission for this decade is to extend their business operations to every point of the coffee value chain, enhance the quality and capacity of their operations, expand their market within Uganda and around the world, and engage with the people and communities they work with in meaningful ways.

Price: $9/12oz

Score: 9.7/10
