The Sipi Falls Coffee Project is situated around the Mount Elgon region in Uganda and was founded in 1999. The Project now encompasses over 5,000 smallholder producers and covers over 2,000 hectares of production. Producers continuously work to improve their agronomic practices to generate higher yields and better product preparation. Extensive intercropping gives both shade and vital nutrients for the coffee trees, as well as additional revenue streams for the producers.

We roast this coffee on the darker side to bring out its stout like mouth feel and bittersweet chocolate notes.
The coffee stands out well with many brewing methods including French Press, Chemex, and V60. Add a touch of cream if you feel like to enhance the chocolates!
