The coffee grower is Sipi Falls Coffee Project which sources their beans from family owned farms located in the Bugasu region on the slopes of Mount Elgon. This region is named for the Bugisu people who are indigenous to this area, and the Sipi Falls Coffee Project is named after a trio of majestic waterfalls that sit at the base of Mount Elgon. The volcanic soils of Mount Elgon, paired with the cooler climate at that altitude is the perfect recipe for growing these superior quality 100% Arabica beans. This organically farmed coffee is certified UTZ, which means “good coffee” in the Guatemalan Mayan language of Quiche. The UTZ program ensures sustainable farming, good agricultural practice, and social living conditions. Based on a model of continuous improvement, UTZ ensures farmers comply with core safety and quality standards, have safe working conditions, access to decent housing, clean water, and healthcare. They also have strict standards in place on protecting nature and endangered species, and practicing correct production and handling of coffee.
