This rich, complex coffee opens with aromas of raisin, dried apple, and cocoa nib. Notes of cashew, dark chocolate, and brown butter accompany blackberry sweetness in the cup. The finish features ginger and pecan notes. "When Tanzania changed its export structure in 2018, the most motivated farmers in Shiston Village (outside Arusha, between Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro) took advantage by organizing a community wet mill. In Tanzanian terms, this was a new AMCOS (Agriculture Marketing Cooperative Society) that for the first time could organize and sell through auction or direct export channels. Their success was immediate, with members joining from neighboring private groups until nearly all coffee producers in Shishton signed up. "Cherries are hand-sorted by the delivering farmer before pulping, then fermented in water in plastic tanks for 72 hours before washing and drying on raised beds for 11-14 days."

Bean Source Country: Tanzania
Tanzanian specialty coffee is known for its bright acidity and fruity notes. Tanzania has high altitudes, such as the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, that allow for rich flavor development. Tanzania is known for its peaberry coffee, formed when one seed develops inside the coffee cherry instead of the usual two. Peaberry beans are prized for their intense flavor and, paired with Tanzanian's unique terrain, make for a specialty coffee drinker's dream.
