Notes of rich chocolate and sweet berry jam lead the way, followed by a pleasant apple-like acidity that adds a bright, crisp finish to this delicious Ugandan coffee. The medium body and smooth texture make for a balanced cup that is easy to enjoy. This coffee is a fine choice for those seeking a nuanced and well-balanced coffee experience.
The Sipi Falls Coffee Project in Uganda's Kapchorwa district was initiated in 1999. It focuses on Arabica coffee grown at altitudes of 1,300-1,900 meters and intercropped with other crops such as bananas and beans. The project, led by Kawacom, began with 5,000 small holder farmers trained in responsible coffee growing practices and efficient farm management.
The name of the project hails from the local scenic landmark of Sipi Falls. This 3-phase waterfall plunges down the slopes of Mt Elgon - once thought to be the tallest in Africa due to its enormous base, which covers 3,500 square kms across Uganda and Kenya.
