Tanzania coffee has a bright and vibrant, wine-like acidity. It can even be sharp, with a deep, rich, and strong taste. Often full or medium bodied that is intense and creamy.
Tasting notes include chocolate, cherries and caramel. This coffee is grown at an elevation of 5,900 feet in the southern highlands of Mbeya growing region. The French brought coffee plants here in the 1800's and in the 1920's India moved coffee here because of the ideal growing climate. Tanzania, like Brazil and Peru in South America, sits just below the equator, providing similar conditions for coffee plantations. Tanzania is located in East Africa. To the west is Rwanda and the Congo. To the east is the Indian Ocean. Heading north you would enter Burundi or Kenya, and south of the country is Mozambique.
