TANZANIA

something's stirring in the south

  • Diamond in the rough.

    Tanzania is a country divided. In the north one finds the Kilimanjaro game reserves and large coffee estates that made Tanzania a household name. In the south live smallholders - farmers who are far removed from the market and compelled to sell through a national auction that views their coffee as commodity. Not everyone shares this view; international nonprofits and private exporters have begun taking notice of the coffees coming out of the South, and over the coming years the world will be more familiar with specialty coffees - and not just Peaberries - coming out of Tanzania's Southern Highlands.

    This is a story in which anyone can take part. Simply start paying attention to coffees from Southern Tanzania. As more people pay attention to the wonderful work done by these small farmers, they will be better able to deliver a diverse range of high-quality regional lots.

    Mwalyego

    The Sourthern Highlands of Tanzania are vast. They span a great number of micro-climates and produce incredible varieties of coffee. However, the coffee market in Tanzania is in the north of the country - where Estates are more common, and where coffee trucked from the South is mixed and milled to produce household coffees such as Tanzania AA and PB.

    Join us as we explore the new frontier in African coffee - Southern Tanzania. Next up - Mwalyego Washing Station.  We came to love Mwalyego based on its geography, cup, and community. TechnoServe has played an active role in training and the development of the community's washing station. This well organized community is looking for an alternative to the coffee markets in the North, where they knew their coffee would lose everything that makes it unique.
