    Uganda Sipi Falls

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    There was 500g of this coffee in my green bean starters pack. I just roasted the last 250g and I am really enjoying it. Its quite nice on its own but better with someting like harrar added to it.
    I would be interested in what others think of it if has been available before.

    Re: Uganda Sipi Falls

    Its very good coffee and we have a few similar profile Uganda coffees in the past. Fairly acidic and well suited to milk drinks but works well through a range of roast depths. Similar to the Bugisu if you are reading other CSrs notes in the cupping room.

    Try using a certal base (Peru, Brazil or similar) to give body and tame the acidity for black drinks (espresso shots)

    Thanks Andy, you do know your stuff. I was wondering what to roast tonight, looks like one will be the Peru so we can try out your suggestion maybe next week.

    We ended up trying the Uganda with some Gambella Sundried immediately after the Gambella was roasted. The Gambella had its characteristic earthy body and some chocolate but not much else I guess from being so soon after the roast.
    Blending with the Uganda made it a much more rounded coffee. There were bighter flavours that went nicely the Gambella character.
