Curator's Notes

This cup comes from the Ngorongoro crater: the world’s largest caldera (volcanic crater) and the top coffee-growing spot in Tanzania. We love the rich body of this roast, and the soft, sugary fruit flavors. Enjoy this gem from a rare African origin.

Roaster's Notes

The Karatu coffee estate is located in the ring of Ngorongoro crater in Karatu. The estate is covered with dark volcanic soil, receives between 70-80 centimeters of rain per year, the bulk of which falls March, April and May. The main variety grown in Tanzania is a Bourbon variant called N39, developed by the Tanzanian Coffee Research Institute for disease resistance and productivity.

"Bluebeard is another roaster that tends to not disappoint. Wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this one with just fruit notes, but it was good. Touch of sweetness with the raw sugar flavor, and definitely tasted the apricot and cantaloupe flavors. Not one I'd choose, but for sure would try again."

"Tastes very much like a deeper, darker roast. However, we wanted a light roast, so... It does have a semi-sweet apricot taste."

"I truly enjoyed this Africian blend. Made a delicious espresso which I drank straight. "
