Ninety percent of Tanzania’s coffee farms are smallholder, with the remainder being larger plantations. The coffee industry employs approximately 270,000 people.

Tanzania coffee generally provides citric and tart/winey like characteristics which we find ourselves to be extremely satisfying. They are sometimes highlighted by notes of Chocolate and Currant like flavors. The cup is bright with a medium body and a smooth syrupy finish.
