Lala Salama means 'Sleep Well' in Swahili, there couldn't be a more fitting name to bestow upon our new regular feature of Sparkling Water Decaffeinated coffee from the African continent.
The Coffee Gardens was established in 2017 with the goal of producing incredible specialty coffee in an ethical way, offering a transparent and direct link between coffee farmers and coffee consumers. The following information on our 2021/22 micro and nano-lots has been produced to enable our customers and consumers to better understand the coffee they are buying, the story behind it, and the incredible farmers who grow it. Micro-lots were assembled by combining day-lots (coffee processed on the same day) with similar taste profiles. Therefore, a single farmer may contribute to multiple micro-lots.
The Coffee Gardens have been working with the farmers who produced this micro-lot for the past five years. They know each and every farming family as they live on the mountain about 600 metres above their washing station. This decaf -lot is named after the villages of Gombe and Zebigi, 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.
