Glad to hear the rave reviews of the Ugandan
coffee.  I'm also relieved that the "leathery"
taste doesn't jump out like a saddle...that
description made my stomach turn just a wee bit.
What's the flavor like?  Along the lines of a
Kenyan, or what? 
Cheers,
Paul

Paul,
To me Ugandan is a lot like the Kenyians, but has some of the character of
the Central Amerians.  For me, I like the balance, and there is a nice clear
after taste.  I don't know where the leather comes in.  On a different note,
I have discovered that by letting my roasted beans "mature", I get a much
better cup.  I used to roast, grind, and brew thinking that made the best
cup of coffee.  Hey, isn't that why we home roast?  I have found that by
waiting about 2 days, I get a much more flavorful cup.  I just roasted some
Gutamalian, and waited 24 hours for the first brew.  On the third day, it
was a much richer coffee.  By the way, I roast two different coffees and
usually alternate days for variety.  My wife won't let me get away with much
more.  On the other side, I have dicovered a marked decline in full flavor
after about 7 days.  I keep my coffee at room temp in air tight containers.
