This coffee is from the Bugisu region on the slopes of Mount Elgon in the Kapchorwa district, Uganda. The Bugisu region is named after the Bugisu people who are indigenous to this area. The Sipi Falls coffee project, named after a trio of majestic waterfalls, was established in 1999 to strengthen quality coffee production in the region and create a sustainable income for farmers.
Tasting Notes: A nice clean and smooth, fuller bodied cup. Mostly darker toned and along the chocolaty side. Similar to a Tanz or Rwanda coffee. This cup is surprising clean especially for the price – a good single origin drinker but also works nicely as a blend base.
Roasting Notes: Good from medium to dark – easy to roast. Medium roasts are delicate and a little sweeter, good cup to sip on all day. Dark roast gets strong and thick with edgy chocolate and smoky tones – kind of like a super clean Sumatra.
