Uganda Sipi Falls Natural


2020 marks Huck's third harvest roasting coffee from farmers in Gamatui Village in the Sipi Falls region of Eastern Uganda. This year we're starting these coffees out with a natural, and will follow up with washed and honey-processed coffees from the same farmers once they land in the US a bit later.

Last year was our first year roasting up a natural from Uganda, and we've been looking forward to this for a few months now. It rivals some of our favorites from Ethiopia, but thanks in part to different coffee varieties (SL28 and SL34), this one carries a bit more chocolate and body.

Sipi Falls is one of Uganda's most famous landmarks, and much of the country's best coffee comes from the region. Huck specifically seeks out the coffees from Gamatui, the highest altitude community that delivers coffee to the Sipi Falls Washing Station in the town of Chema. That high altitude, combined with Sipi Falls Washing Station's impressive attention to detail, yields complex, delicious, and juicy goodness in the cup.

Uganda is an up-and-coming coffee-producing country, but the coffees from Sipi Falls and Gamatui village have quickly become coffees we look forward to each year. We’re stoked to showcase and support the improvements in Ugandan coffee, but more importantly, we’re just stoked to have this coffee in our mugs. Sipi Falls Natural packs dark fruit flavors of concord grape and berry jam, rounded out with dark chocolate sweetness and a round body. If we had to pick a natural to hold us over until fresh crop Ethiopias (and we do!), we're hard-pressed to find a better one than this.
