Tasting Notes

Gombe is a dynamic cup, with violet-hued, jungle-bloom aromas and bold, tropical fruit flavors – mango, banana and pineapple – and a finish that rivals the spirit and intensity of a young wine.

Rating: 90 Points (out of 100)

Rich, deep, balanced coffee with tight-knit complexity in aroma and cup: night flowers, orange, berry, raisin. Delicately bright acidity, medium body, simple but cleanly rich finish.
— Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview.com, August 2009

About Green Mountain Coffee®

 

 

A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important.

That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world.

Notes From Origin

The spring-like temperatures and predictable rainfall of Tanzania's greater Gombe region provide ideal habitat for both chimpanzees and world-class coffee. Its lush mix of grassland, open woodland, and deep green forests is one of the few places on earth where coffee farmers and chimpanzees live side-by-side.

Because it thrives under the shade of a forest canopy, this extraordinary coffee grows in harmony with chimps in one of their last, remaining habitats. It provides farmers an incentive to preserve the forest, a chance at economic stability, and a uniquely memorable taste profile.

“Our effort to involve local citizens in restoring the forests and practicing sustainable agriculture is the most important work we can do to ensure a future for the Gombe chimpanzees and the people of Africa.”
— Dr. Jane Goodall

Our Tanzanian Gombe Reserve coffee is the first to receive Jane Goodall's "Good for All" seal, signifying that it promotes better pay for farmers as well as a commitment to protect the environment and the planet's wildlife.

      Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 10oz GRND Tanzan Gombe Resrv:

      A great mid-morning / early afternoon blend that provides a lift to your day and a treat to look forwards to. Truly wonderful real coffee flavor without the bite and bitter aftertaste. It puts those burnt tasting West Coast USA blends to shame and provides an excellent example of what good coffee is suppose to taste like.

        Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 10oz GRND Tanzan Gombe Resrv:

        The headline says it all. Originally, I met this wonderful bean at a local coffee show and was buying pounds of it there for several years. When the economic hardships hit family businesses, my local coffee house closed down. Saddened by the loss of a good business and a quiet place to hang out with good atmosphere, I was even more depressed at the thought of never having Tanzanian brew again. Searched all over the place, internet included... Green Mountain is the only place that sells the real deal.

            This coffee is absolutely delicious, with a warm and inviting aroma and delightful aftertaste. Our choices have far-reaching impact, so we consume consciously. We love to begin our day with a fabulous cup of coffee and boutique coffee has been one of our few indulgences, but that has changed since purchasing our first bag of Gombe Reserve Green Mountain Coffee. This has become our coffee of choice and also makes a great gift for others!

            I just about tackled the store clerk after I pulled the last two bags from the shelf! "You MUST order more before next week!" I exclaimed. In a brief moment I caught myself lusting over this Heaven-sent coffee which I know is a sin but...I'm taking my chances! If Heaven doesn't have this coffee then I don't want to go there! Amen.

              This is a unique coffee, no question about it. I'm not going to love it simply for its social value, but at the same time I can't find anything really negative to say about it.

              Granted, it does disappoint aroma-wise out of the bag, and the flavor may be a bit heavy as though it were heavily roasted, but it does have a rich flavor nonetheless. It may be a flavor that is a bit strange as compared to other coffees, but it isn't harsh, bitter, or overpowering.

              I would keep this to serve to people for an unusual coffee experience, and for those willing to "try something different" for a change. Not my idea of an every-day coffee, but it does have its place in my coffee stock.

                I expected way more from this coffee, such as tasting notes of berries. The aroma was stale, and the taste was unappealing. I would not recommend this coffee to anyone.

                          I bought this coffee specifically because of it helping out JGI and the Gombe reserve... to my immense pleasure when I received it I found this to also literally be the BEST COFFEE I have ever tasted. It is perfect. Dark, deep, rich and simply wonderful. I only have a cheap drip but I do fresh grind it and it is fantastic!
