This coffee is a true Kilimanjaro classic. Produced along the ridges of Africa’s highest mountain, this coffee comes from smallholders who belong to the Mamsera, Mahida and Kirwa Keni cooperative groups in the Kilimanjaro district. These co-ops deliver their coffee to the Rafiki Coffee Mill, which completes the production of nearly 60 percent of all coffee in northern Tanzania. The Kirwa Keni cooperative, in the Rombo district, was established in the 1980s as a member of the Kilimanjaro Native Co-operative Union (KNCU) the first and oldest co-op in Tanzania, dating to 1925. The Mamsera cooperative is renowned for producing some of the best coffees in the country.
Note: Please allow an extra day or 2 for orders to be shipped to insure quality fresh coffee. We roast regularly and then ship immediately.
We roast about 11 pounds at a time. Each coffee has a “sweet spot” and needs to be roasted to just that level. Some beans need to be roasted lightly to keep their sweet, delicate flavor. Other beans are better suited for a medium or dark roast. And finally, the fresh, premium-quality coffee arrives in your home, is brewed to perfection, and is savored by you, your family, and friends.
Our family roastery is committed to providing you with coffee that is at the very peak of freshness. We carefully select beans from a variety of countries and roast them to perfection in small batches. Our goal is to have quality coffee to you as soon as possible after roasting. From the mountains of Colombia to the island of Papua New Guinea, you can travel the world through our coffee. Enjoy with us one of the many delights of God’s wonderful creation!
