We are thrilled to be introducing our first, of what we hope to be many, offerings from Tanzania! I was lucky enough to travel through Tanzania in my youth, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, sailing Dhows off white sand beaches and listening to lions wander past our tents in the Serengeti National Park . So to say this coffee brings back some great memories is an understatement. Tanzanian coffee may not be as well known as its neighbours, but still represents a great cup of East African goodness - fruity & floral we love this coffee!
Located ~ 3 hours from Arusha, high in the cloud forest that surrounds the Ngorongo Crater next to the Serengeti, Ngila Estate is recognized as a leading farm for quality in all of Northern Tanzania. They placed in the 2021 Alliance for Coffee Excellence auction, setting record prices and showing the world what Tanzania is capable of. The estate was established in the early 1920s by German settlers, then bought in 1992 by the Rudolph Meyer family who have invested heavily in technology like drip irrigation and eco-pulpers.
