Tanzania is a country of extremes. The continent’s highest peak Mt. Kilimanjaro at 5895 meters above sea level and deepest trench the floor of lake Tanganyika at 352 meters below sea level are both located within the East African nation’s borders. Temperatures in the port city of Dar Es Salaam regularly reaches triple digits, while snow never leaves some of the caps of the country’s mountains. Tanzania was held under colonialism first by the Germans, then the British – it wasn’t until 1961 that the Tanzanian people regained their independence.

This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Ndugu Hills factory located in the Mbeya region, Tanzania. Despite neighbouring Kenya - arguably home to some of the greatest specialty coffee in the world Southern Tanzania is fairly new to the specialty coffee scene. Located in the Ndugu Hills, this passionate group of farmers was discovered by specialty coffee merchants from Kenya, who recognized they had both the environment and attitude needed to produce excellent specialty coffee. A funded project was then established to help these farmers raise their coffee to specialty status. In just one year, the quality of their coffee increased by 50% and made it to specialty grade. Shortly afterwards the coffee began to fetch double the price. Currently the group is made up of 900 farmers. The economic impact this has on the region and its community is phenomenal.
