Made with Tanzanian Songwe Hezya Beans
Tanzania, a sprawling African nation, stands as one of the continent's largest countries in terms of land area. Annually, it produces approximately 650,000 bags of Arabica coffee. Notably, about 90% of Tanzania's Arabica coffee undergoes the wash processing method, either at an AMCOS CPU or by hand pulping at home.
Tanzania employs a unique grading system that bears resemblances to the grading system used in Kenya. This grading system considers various factors, including the coffee's species, bean size, density, processing method, and cup characteristics.
These beans may be small but they sure pack a punch! So full of flavor yet smooth and calming! Even though I love my morning cup of Joe this one is perfect for an after dinner treat!!
