NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Majestic Mt.Elgon National Park is a vast area encompassing territories in Eastern Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania and holds treasures of biodiversity. Flora and fauna are abundant and the region is home to some of the world's best coffee. Our Organic Uganda Sipi Falls comes from a project initiated in 1999 by partner and importer Royal Coffee, and takes its name from a trio of waterfalls near the Kapchorwa District, Bugisu . The Bugisu region is named after the Bugisu people who are indigenous to the area. Royal sources the coffee from local family farms and mills.
Several Arabica cultivars comprise this coffee: Bourbon, SL14, SL28, Blue Mountain and native Bugisu. Altitude ranges from 1500 to staggering 2500 meters above sea level. The coffee is fully washed and sun-dried. This is a wonderful coffee, fully organically produced and carrying RFA and UTZ certifications. Brown sugar, mango and sweet potato notes predominate in the rich cup.
Badbeard's is working with US-based non-profit S.O.U.L. (“Supporting Opportunities for Ugandans to Learn) Foundation, a US- and Uganda-based non-profit. A bit of the story…
Shortly after finishing nursing school in 2009, Brooke Stern and her father, Kenneth Stern, set out on a backpacking trip through East Africa. Spending just five days in poverty-stricken Bujagali Falls, they were struck by the lack of basic necessities but amazed by the people's spirits and enthusiasm, even in the face of extreme poverty.
"In the village we saw hunger but we also saw thirst: thirst for knowledge, thirst for a better tomorrow, thirst for the opportunity to lift themselves out of gripping poverty." -Brooke Stern
One month after her initial life-changing visit, Brooke returned to Uganda and spent the next 13 months living with and listening to the community's needs, wants, and frustrations. Surrounded by failed examples of aid, she recognized that a new model with a focus on access to education was needed to address the underlying complex causes of poverty. Through this experience, Supporting Opportunities for Ugandans to Learn (S.O.U.L.) Foundation was born.
S.O.U.L. now works in 14 villages in the Jinja and Iganga Districts, directly and indirectly impacting 9,000 Ugandans. Brooke resides in Uganda the majority of the year, working with a Ugandan staff of 24 people to oversee the day-to-day activities and impact of the Foundation. The organization is also supported by a U.S.-based Executive Director and Board of Directors.
Badbeard's is kicking $2.50/lb. of each bag/lb sold to SOUL and will assist in local outreach and fundraising efforts.

Exceptional Mexico Alfred Klein Finca San Carlos arrival.. Mexico, so near and dear to my heart after a near-decade living there in the '90s, produces a lot of good coffee, most of it exported. Occasionally it's exceptional, like the newly-arrived (7-7-17) washed Finca San Carlos. My buds and savants at importer Royal Coffee have been after me for years ...more
