The coffee takes its name after their farming origin –the volcanic land, and both carry an explosion of flavors within. Lava cherry is a full-body cup with fruity tropical notes. The majority of coffees in the region are picked and processed by individual households, who then deliver their coffees to local collection centres. Here is it appropriately recorded to ensure it remains traceable upon arrival at Great Lakes Coffee’s processing station in Sironko, “The Coffee Yard”. This is where GLC’s Head of Sourcing, Norman, works his magic to produce the Lava Cherry bean we know and love.
