Tasting Notes


Tanzania is a new coffee country for us.  Pair that with a peaberry bean and we have an amazing cup of coffee.  I have been drinking this coffee since the day I first roasted a sample.  I don't know how to describe the flavors of this coffee, because it is so much tastier than the notes that come to mind.  It is an incredibly complex and sweet cup.  I taste baking spice and plums.  I get a sweetness of a good pineapple, but it's such a hint, that I photo'd it in the background.  If you're on the fence about this bean, I recommend you try it because I am not describing it well enough.


About The Farm / Origin


"Sungura" is the name of the coffee washing station, or "CPU" (coffee processing unit) located in Mbeya, southern Tanzanian Highlands. Sungura is one of several Farmer Business Groups (FBG) in the regions, essentially a cooperative effort by smallholder coffee farmers to pool resources, processing and marketing of their crop. In a place like Tanzania, where small holders may only produce a few bags of coffee, FBG's give farmer members the opportunity to combine lots together, which in this case, affords them the resource of processing coffees on big machinery rather than by hand - a tedious task that would be necessary for processing small amounts of coffee. The station sits at around 1650 meters above sea level and coffee is grown up to 2000 meters. This area is primarily planted in bourbon, and this particular lot is fully washed
