Origin of our Beans
We sampled beans from all the major coffee producing regions but fell in love with this one from Sipi Falls in Uganda.
Sipi Falls is a beautiful landmark in Uganda, originating from Mount Elgon. According to many because of the large size of its base, Elgon was once the tallest mountain in Africa. The Sipi Falls Coffee Project, was initiated by Kawacom in 1999. It now incorporates over 5,000 small-holder farmers, which cover an area of over 2,000 hectares. With training, young trees, and extension services provided by Kawacom, farmers are improving agronomic practices for both quantity and higher quality yield, generating more income for their families. Extensive use of intercropping provides both shade and compost for the coffee trees and food for the farmers, as well.
The characteristics of the bean includes a lemony acidity with a smooth nutty caramel mouth feel that finishes in sweet vanilla.
We love it!
