Tasting Notes

Tanzania has started to become one of my favorite counties of origin.  They have great complexity, richness, and sweetness.  This one, in particular, is outstanding.  I love the blackberry notes in this coffee, mixed with the caramel sweetness and the juicy mouthfeel.  This is a complex coffee for those of you that love thinking through the flavor notes.  For the rest of you, you'll wake up in the morning and comment, "That is one good cup of coffee!"

About The Farm / Origin

The Mwika North Farmer Group was established in 1984 as a cooperative and as a member of the larger Kilimanjaro Native Co-operative Union (KNCU) — the very first cooperative in Tanzania. The KNCU was established in 1925, shortly after the arrival of coffee in Tanzania.

In 2004, Mwika North became one of the first organic certified producer groups in the Kilimanjaro region. The producers still take pride in following organic farming standards, and this coffee has EU Organic certification status (though not U.S.).
