The Coffee Gardens was established in 2017 with the goal of ethically producing specialty coffee. In 2022, they expanded their capacity by dismantling their old washing station and rebuilding it on a new site.
This micro-lot is produced by 275 farmers, on the mountain above The Coffee Gardens’ washing station. The farmers deliver the coffee cherries down to the processing station themselves, where it is sorted, pulped and then soaked in cold mountain water, before being submerged in tanks for a 40hr fermentation.
The coffee is washed and floaters are removed, before it is dried, first on raised beds in the shade for 2-3 days, then in a solar drier for 10 days, until it reaches between 15-25% moisture content, depending on the time of the season and local weather. The coffee is then transported down the hill to their drying yard in Mbale where it is dried for another 10 days to below 11% moisture.
