Our Ugandan Coffee is from a small plantation, owned and operated by the Sabiny Tribe. A tasty cup of our Ugandan coffee will give you the desirable wine-like acidity of a fine East African coffee, yet with a lighter body.
This year’s new crop brings out a clean, smooth and balanced cup. It offers flavors of cacao, lemon verbena, and green grape. Our Sabiny Tribe Coffee is in limited supply. Order soon, so you don't miss out on this ethnic coffee experience.

The name Sipi Falls originated from a Sabiny word ‘Sep’ which literally means water falling from the mountain. Located in Eastern Uganda, on the slopes of Mt. Elgon, Sipi falls sits a few kilometers away from one of Uganda most breathtaking National Parks, prime territory for growing of Arabica coffee due to its high altitude which goes above 2,000 mbsl, generous soils, and abundance of natural waterfalls and streams. The region is home to Sabiny Tribe who voyaged from Ethiopian highland through the rift valley region in Kenyan and eventually settling at the slope of Mt. Elgon, Uganda.
