This microlot is named after the village of Gombe, located on the mountain behind The Coffee Gardens’ (TGC) washing station. TCG have been working with for the past 6 years. Every year, TCG provide training and services to their partner farmers on a range of programs to improve incomes, livlihoods and the environment.
Freshly picked cherries are pulped prior to a pre-wash, a long soak in mountain spring water, then a gentle forty-hour submerged fermentation. The coffee is then washed and any floaters removed and transferred for skin drying on raised beds in the shade for 2-3 days. After this, the coffee is put into a solar drier where it will continue to dry for 10 days until it reaches between 15-25%, depending on the time of the season and local weather. At this stage the coffee is then transported down the hill to The Coffee Gardens drying yard in Mbale, where it is dried down for another 10 days to reach 11% moisture content before it is left to rest and then prepared for milling and shipping.
This coffee has been meticulously sorted at 12 different stages before export.
