TANZANIA AA EDELWEISS
Our December Coffee Of The Month is a complex medium roast from the Edelweiss estate in Tanzania. This coffee has a medium acidity that pops at the beginning of the cup with notes of cherry and raspberry. As the acidity fades, it becomes sweeter with dried cherry flavors melding with chocolate and truffle notes. The finish is rich and sweet with a light creaminess, that reminded us of whipped cream or mallow.
Roast Color: Medium
Cupping Notes: Dried Cherry, Chocolate, Whipped Cream
Story: This coffee is sourced from a family owned estate located in Oldeani, Tanzania. The 600 acre estate, called Edelweiss, is perched on the slopes of the Ngorogoro Caldera (the largest unbroken caldera in the world), a protected wildlife refuge for the endangered black rhino and UNESCO World Heritage site. The estate has been in the Vohora family since the end of World War II. In recent years the Vohora family has made significant farm renovation including intercropping macadamia trees for shade and income diversity. Mill innovations have also vastly improved water management and quality control from picking to export. More than 50 full time employees have access to housing and land to grow food crops for their families.
