This micro-lot is named after the village Gombe, where many of the farmers live. Last year, with the support of roasters, we trained these farmers on growing coffee amongst shade trees, good agricultural practices, and of course, better harvesting techniques. In July, we distributed over 8,300 shade, fruit and fast growing tree seedlings.

This year, training is continuing and we’re building toilet blocks for the three primary schools in the area, including Zebugu-Busi Primary School.  Farmers have coffee gardens of different sizes and so supply different amounts of coffee. Mr Zesiro Micheal from Gombe was one of the biggest contributors to this micro-lot with 967 KG of red ripe coffee cherries.

Within hours of being picked, coffee cherries are carried down to our station in 50 kg bags by “runners” – a team of over 160 women and men employed from the local community. This coffee is pulped before undergoing our signature fermentation method involving a pre-wash, a long soak in cold mountain spring water, and then a gentle long fermentation lasting forty hours before a final wash. This coffee is meticulously sorted at 12 different stages before export.
