Tanzania, the largest country in East Africa, is just a little bit more than twice the size of California. The highest free-standing mountain in the world, Mt. Kilimanjaro is here. Tanzania is made up of one hundred and thirty tribes, each significant in their own way, with over one hundred and twenty languages spoken.
With more than four million wild animals in its periphery, Tanzania has the largest concentration of animals per square kilometer, in the world. Talking about a wild place, thirty percent of country’s area is occupied with National Parks, with twelve parks, thirteen nature reserves, and thirty-eight protected areas. The most famous National Park of Tanzania is the Serengeti National Park. When a million wildebeests cross over to the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya the migration is so epic some say it is one of the natural wonders of the world. Check out this cool video of part of the wildebeest's migration:
Tanzania is the third-largest coffee producer in Africa and produces about one percent of the world’s Arabica coffee. Tanzania produces some of the most unique coffees in the world, very highly regarded, but unlike other premium coffees that you would never add into a dark roast, Tanzania's coffee beans work extremely well into darker roasts.
Our Tanzania hails from smallholding farms in the Tarime district located in the northern tip of Tanzania which is a stone’s throw away from the border of Kenya. The region has a reputation for delicious coffee that is more complex and a higher grade than most of the country’s harvest. This incredible organic coffee is handpicked, naturally sun-dried and softened by the aging process.
The complexity is surprising to coffee connoisseurs and the tasting notes are all over the board, in a sense a reflection of the wild nature of its homeland. Our Tanzania Tarime Organic Coffee is rare, mild-bodied with flavors of amiable citrus and tangerine overtones, coupled with dried fruit sweetness and bright acidity.
Taste Tanzania, Taste Heaven.
