Product Description

    Details

    Malawi Misuku Hills, FT Mzuzu This single-origin coffee is grown within Africa's smallest coffee growing country. For over one 100 years land locked Malwai has been producing coffee. Only from the 1890's with establishment of the Shire Highlands Railway has Malawi's coffee gone elsewhere other than to the British who had established coffee farming in the region. When the farms left British control and became fully owned by private Malawi entrepreneurs her coffee began to become more available to the rest of the world. Nestled into southern central Africa, the Republic of Malawi forms a landlocked strip of a plateau surrounded by Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania. It is one of the most densely populated countries in Africa with over 13 million people living in only 118,000 square kilometers, of which 20% is water. Most of the smallholder farmers in the north are growing their coffee under tree or banana shade. it reduces stress from both sun’s heat and provides an environment where the coffee is less affected by pests and diseases. Traditionally, coffee was grown intermingled with tall trees in an environment that closely resembled an actual forest, with undergrowth consisting of coffee bushes. The falling leaves of the trees above acted as fertilizer and the natural biodiversity of the forest created an equilibrium, which acted as its own pest management system. In an environment such as this, native wildlife co-exists within the farm in a habitat without borders. This crop expresses qualities of raisiny-dried fruit acidity, caramel, becoming more complex as the cup cools. Big chewy body, creamy mouth feel. Bright finish, almost lemony. Limited.
