Product Description

    Details

    Sipi Falls is a series of three waterfalls in Eastern Uganda in the district of Kapchorwa, northeast of Sironko and Mbale. The waterfalls lie on the edge of Mount Elgon National Park near the Kenyan border. The Sipi Falls area is the starting point for many hikes up Mt. Elgon. The most popular route starts in Budadiri and follows the Sasa trail to the summit and then descends down the Sipi trail back into the Sipi Falls. Hikes around the falls offer stunning views of the Karamoja plains, Lake Kyoga, and the slopes of Mt. Elgon. Individuals can organise trips through the Uganda Wildlife Authority or local private operators.[1][2] There are a number of lodges and backpackers / campsites in the area offering a range of accommodation for all budgets. With a cooler climate than most of the country Sipi Falls is a nice place to unwind, relax and literally chill out away from the hustle and bustle of the towns and cities. Being on the foothills of Mt. Elgon, Sipi offers a number of alternative activities to the mainstream river activities in and around Jinja. Rob's Rolling Rock, a local outfit trained by Italian climbers offers abseiling along the side of the main 100m Sipi waterfall as well as climbing on 14 bolted sport routes with a range of difficulty. Other activities include hiking around the local area and visiting the local waterfalls. The Sipi River is named after the ‘Sep’, a plant indigenous to the banks of the River. Resembling a type of wild banana, Sep is a medicinal plant, the translucent green frond with a bolt of crimson rib is used for treating measles and fever. The Sipi Falls area is particularly famous for locally grown Bugisu Arabica coffee. Bugisu Arabica only grows at an altitude of between 1,600 and 1,900 metres. Coffee tours are organized through guides with knowledge of coffee farming, processing and roasting. Profits from this go towards community projects. Thanks to Wikipedia

    Preferred Preperation

    We have no prescribed brewing method for individual coffees, since their characteristics remain.  Plunger/French Press is the purest form of consuming coffee as it shows up all traits, good and bad.  Espressos tend to mask certain impurities as this is a fast, creamy, romantic extraction.  Adding milk changes the taste but 95% of coffee is drunk with milk.

    Whatever tastes good for you is all that counts.

    Our coffee comes in 250g pouches with clear front (to show off the quality of our beans) and metallic back.

    Pouches have zip locks for your convenience

    Since we roast daily only the amount of coffee we sell, so you are assured of freshness.

    We use roasting date labels in stead of sell-by dates

    Coffee has a half life of 2 weeks. After two months the oils start going rancid and your coffee has reached the end of its life. 

    Your old coffee grinds can be tossed into the compost.
