Single-estate Ihombe Village, Tanzania lot
Smooth and pleasing coffee for pour-over or auto-drip
Our Tanzania Lungwa is grown on the 380 hectare, Lunji Coffee Estate. The farm, that lies at the base of Mount Mbeya, is owned and operated by Clemens Moier. He grows and harvests four varietals (Bourbon, Kilimanjaro, Blue Mountain, and Luwiri) on 92 acres of the farm.
The coffee is picked at perfect ripeness and depulped the same day. This is followed by 72 hours of dry fermentation in open air cement tanks. The coffee is washed three times, sorted into different qualities grades (based on size, shape, and density), and then laid out to dry on raised beds for 10-12 days.
Tanzanian coffee has all the components we value from high elevation African coffee: tea-like flavors, stone fruits, bright citrus, and floral notes. When you combine that with a full body you can be sure that Tanzania Lungwa will stand out in a crowd. Dial into red apple and cocoa with 1:16 brew ratio, filtered water at 208-210℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5 minute brew cycle.
