The Area

This bean is grown on the slopes of Elgon mountain range in three distinct areas, namely the Mbale, Sironko, and Kapchorwa Districts. It is found at varying altitudes, ranging from 1,300 metres in the South, climbing up to 1,900 metres in the Central and Northern Districts.

The area is are well known for the cultivation of 'Bugisu' Arabica, which is the most renowned of the Ugandan Arabicas.

The Cooperative

This coffee type was grown and harvested as part of the Sipi Falls Coffee Project which began in 1999.

Since it was founded, the project has significantly expanded to incorporate 5,000 smallholder producers who tend to own over 2,000 hectares of land.  The benefits of the projects reach beyond the coffee farm to the community with around 3.5 million families being directly linked to the project. There are various services provided via the project, such as training, education in agronomic practices and methods to improve both the quantity and quality of the output.

The cultivation of coffee plays a major role as one of the few sources of commercial income available to rural families.


This bean is processed using anaerobic natural fermentation. This new processing technique involves allowing the beans to ferment without oxygen present. This results in a rich and punchy flavour.

As part of our curated Black Label collection, this bright and aromatic bean showcases tasting notes of pineapple, mandarin & papaya. This single origin shines best as a pourover or filter style coffee and is best without milk.
