Grown just south of the equator in Kenya's Rift Valley, this coffee is grown in nutrient rich red volcanic soil. The incredibly fertile soil paired with the low rainfall allows this coffee to develop slower than in other areas. This slow development gives the Gachombe intense and rich flavours that really capture what is so incredible about Kenyan coffee.
The three varietals that make up the Gachombe were created by Scott Laboratories in an attempt to create not only an incredible tasting coffee but one that also satisfies the farmers need for disease resistant crops. This allows the farmer to reduce using chemicals without compromising on the final cup.
In The Cup | Intense and juicy with apricot and jam complemented by limeade and blackberry.
