Tanzania- Tarime

Tanzania- Tarime

This coffee originates from the Tarime region of Tanzania, between the Serengeti and Lake Victoria.  The smallholder farms in this remote region own between 2-8 hectares of land and grow coffee on up to 2 hectares of it; the rest is used for subsistence crops and other cash crops.  The Muriba washing station allows farmers an opportunity to deliver their coffee in cherry form, which reduces the need for drying spaces, allows them to be paid faster, and gives them more space on their farmland. The Muriba mill sorts, depulps, and ferments the coffee underwater for 12-15 hours before drying it on raised beds for 7-15 days.

This sweet blend contains notes of cane sugar, chocolate, floral, caramel, and almond.  It has a medium-full body. This washed blend is great for espresso and drip and pour over.
