The Story

Tanzania | Hasambo AA | Whole Bean

It's been a while since we've had a Tanzanian bean in, over half a year ago in fact. This Tanzanian comes from the South West, close to the Zambian border. It's round and full bodied with a pleasant finish. Ripe plum, Quince, Double Cream.

Hasambo AMCOS is a co-op started in collaboration with Communal Shamba LTD, a social enterprise founded solely by young Tanzanians. The co-op have sought to differentiate by consolidating and streamlining the traditional value chain for smallholder coffee production, as well as through pioneering processing techniques to diversify their offering and open new markets.

Communal Shamba works with a number of farmers groups (known in Tanzania as Agricultural Marketing Co-operative Societies, or AMCOS’) in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania, Mbeya Region, Mbozi District. Most the farmer groups are part of the Ihowa Community. This year Communal Shamba paid the highest cherry price in the region almost 80% higher than the standard local market price 2,200. Communal Shamba have engaged in a number of community projects such as rehabilitating the local school and a broad scope health project tackling (including lobbying staffing, clean water storage, computers, refrigeration and sterilizing units).

This lot utilises a double fermentation process, both wet and dry, followed by sun-drying on raised African beds for an average of 14 days.
