Honey | Berry | Citrus


Tanzania Mbeya Mimba Estate


This was an exciting coffee to evaluate. The Carriage House tasting team took our top five test profiles and unanimously chose this particular offering, which edged out the heavy competition with its marvelous combination of honey, berry, and citrus essence. This is a great coffee served hot, straight off a pour over; and it's equally enjoyable as it cools, lending itself nicely to an array of cold brew and cold coffee beverages.

Mimba Estate, located in Mbozi, Mbeya in Southwest Tanzania, was established in 1995 by Joseph Meila, a Swiss immigrant who arrived in Tanzania almost a decade earlier. Joseph initially planted about 100 hectares of Bourbon with some Kent on the land and has, over the past three decades, expanded production to cover the full 160 hectares of the farm. During harvest Mr. Joseph employs over 150 men and women from the surrounding community to assist with the production and processing of the coffee on the estate.
