TANZANIA MLAMA - NATURAL


Regular price $18.00
Mlama Farm is one of four farms that make up an estate called African Plantation Kilimanjaro. The estate has been in existence since the 1930s near Mount Kilimanjaro. It's currently 72 hectares, on which there are many varieties of coffee grown. 
The fertile volcanic soil that is lightly acidic, rich in nitrogen, potassium, and magnesium, provides an ideal place for coffee trees to grow.
The coffee has an AA grading, which is the highest, specialty grade for Tanzanian coffee, and we are happy to have this new coffee through our partners at Cafe Imports!

Cupping Notes:

Delightfully bright, medium-bodied, notes of pears & figs, with a honey-sweet finish.

Tanzania is the 2nd largest economy in East Africa, yet its reliance on agricultural exports, like coffee, contributes to its economic instability. For the last 30 years the Tanzanian coffee industry lagged as other regions surged ahead with more marketing dollars and efforts to promote their coffees. In an effort to reclaim their name in the world coffee markets, farmers are getting organized and planting new varieties like the Kent, the Pacamara, and the Geisha, all coffees with rich backgrounds and tastes. These varieties are adding a good complexity and flavor to Tanzanian coffee.
