Tanzania Edelweiss Estate Peaberry RFA
Our Tanzanian Edelweiss Estate AB RFA coffee is sourced from a family owned estate in Oldeani located in the Karatu district of the Arusha region. The Edelweiss Estate is 600 acres perched on the slopes of the Ngorogoro Caldera (the largest unbroken caldera in the world) which is a protected wildlife refuge for the endangered black rhino and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The estate has been in the Vohora family since the end of World War II and in recent years they have made significant farm renovations including intercropping macadamia trees for shade as well as income diversity. They have also improved water management and quality control from picking to export with new innovations at their mill. More than 50 full time employees sustain the estate and have access to housing and land to grow food crops for their families.
This coffee is grown in volcanic loam at 1,600 to 1,850 meters and is Rainforest Alliance Certified. Coffee cherries are processed fully washed and then dried in raised beds. Pleasant sweet aroma with hints of citrus and stone fruit. Focused in the cup with a smooth, medium body and nuances of rich chocolate, grapefruit, plum and lime.
