NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Tanzania Mbeya

Country of Origin: Tanzania
Tanzania Mbeya
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
No surprise that the majestically beautiful vastness of Tanzania includes a thriving coffee sector. Like most of East Africa, the soils surrounding its primary stratovolcano (Mt. Kiliminjaro) are superb for growing anything, especially coffee, which was first planted at the very end of the 19th century.
The Mbeya region of South Tanzania is particularly known for coffees of great citrusy taste and acidity. This “community lot” offering is from the combined efforts of the Usongwe and Shiviwaka co-operatives, together comprising about 740 members. At an elevation of 1700 meters, the average size of these farmers' farms is between 0.5 and 1.5 hectares (Basically, between 1 and 4 acres.) These producers are mostly subsistence farmers who rely on coffee production as their main income, though they also grow bananas, beans and maize and keep chickens, goats and cows.
Our Mbeya shows notes of apricot, lemon-lime, caramel and black tea. “Robustly delicate” in a pourover one must say!

The infamous coffee-bean cleaning-machine Jacu bird from the Amazon
If your coffee tastes like s--t, don't blame the Jacu bird! This infamous Amazon bean-machine beak-selects each coffee berry at the peak of ripeness and leaves just the beans, somewhat clean and green, behind...so to speak.
"Yes...it has been too long. I have a list of excuses!!! But none of them can make up for the mornings and nights I've went without the best ? ever!!! Anxiously awaiting...."
