Organic Bugisu, Uganda
Farm: The Bugisu region is named after the Bugisu people who are indigenous to this area. The coffee is sourced from family farms on the slopes of the extinct Mount Elgon volcano in eastern Uganda near the Kenyan border. The Sipi Falls coffee project, named after a trio of majestic waterfalls in the region, was established in 1999 to strengthen quality coffee production and create a sustainable income for farmers.
Tasting Notes: A well-rounded cup with subtle sweetness of dried fig and a mild earthiness. The mouthfeel is light with mellow acidity. Tasting notes of cacao nibs, dried fig and persimmon bread.
