Sipi Falls is a series of three waterfalls that lie on the edge of Mount Elgon National Park in Eastern Uganda. The areas surrounding the falls are well known for the cultivation of Bugisu Arabica, the most renowned of the Ugandan Arabicas.

This organically certified Uganda Bugisu has been grown and harvested as part of the Sipi Falls Coffee Project. The project was first initiated in 1999 and has grown to incorporate more than 5,000 smallholder producers who tend an area over 2000 hectares in size. Through training and extension services offered through the project, producers are encouraged to improve agronomic practices in order to increase yield and improve quality. Producers practice intercropping to improve coffee quality and foster income diversification.

The coffee is grown on the slopes of Elgon mountain range in three distinct areas, namely the Mbale, Sironko, and Kapchorwa Districts, and is thus found at varying altitudes, ranging from 1300 metres in the South, climbing up to 1900 metres in the Central and Northern Districts.
