Mount Elgon is a massive peak split nearly in two by the border of Uganda and Kenya. The "mountain" itself is more an enormous expanse of successive plateaus that float dramatically above the surrounding valley floor. It is also home to a dense patchwork of farming communities growing some of the best organic coffee in Africa.
Sipi Falls, named after the mountain's most famous waterfall just down the road, is a centralized wet mill. Sipi Falls' coffees are rich and delicious, but also capable of surprising florality and mandarin-like sweetness.
