East Africa - Decaf Blend
This is our first exploration into decaf coffee after a few requests. On the search for a small batch decaf, ethically processed at an affordable price was hard to find. Then, we stumbled upon Falcon Micro's latest offering - a blend from Ethiopia and Uganda.
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 thier washing station. Within hours of being picked, coffee cherries are carried down to our station in 50 kg bags by “runners” – a team of nearly 160 women and men employed from the local community. This coffee is pulped before undergoing TCG’s 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.
