Tanzania Kilimanjaro Plantation Peaberry

Mt Kilimanjaro

  Kilimanjaro Plantation is located on the fertile savannahs in the shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This area offers excellent conditions for growing coffee including highly fertile rich, red volcanic soil, a moderate tropical highland climate, gentle mountain slopes, access to a great number of sources and springs and a mild mountain climate due to the vicinity of Kilimanjaro. Day and night differ only moderately in temperature. In the background, the plantation has a breathtaking view of the 19,000+ foot, snow capped Mount Kilimanjaro.

 

 Kilimanjaro Plantation is not only one of the largest but also one of the most modern farms in Tanzania. Advanced technology has been implemented in combination with long standing knowledge in coffee production. This plantation strictly adheres to Utz Kapek criteria: coffee production that ensures good, efficient growing practices, responsible farm management, and full traceability. The farm is ecologically minded, with a drip irrigation system that uses 60% less water than a traditional system, and the processing facility uses a water treatment system developed in collaboration with the University of Braunschweig that allows complete water cleansing. In order to ensure these high standards, the workers on the farm are highly trained and well provided for, including health insurance, lodging, and a safe work environment. It is in this manner that one of the most exquisite Tanzanian premium coffees for the specialty market has been created.

 

This is one intense coffee. It has a red wine-like tartness and a dry grape acidity. The cup is complex with a combination of floral notes, hints cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and a maple sweetness. It has a light, creamy body and a complex dry finish. This coffee makes excellent milk drinks like lattes and cappuccinos, and works well as the mornings first cup as it really wakes up the taste buds. A very unique and bold cup.
