Most Tanzania arabicas are grown on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru, near the Kenyan border. These coffees are called Kilimanjaro or sometimes Moshi or Arusha after the main towns and shipping points. Smaller amounts of arabica are grown much farther south, between Lake Tanganyika and Lake Nyasa, and are usually called Mbeya, after one of the principal towns, or Pare, a market name. Owing to tradition, most Tanzania coffee sold in the United States is peaberry, a grade made up entirely of coffee from fruit that produces a single, rounded bean rather than twin flat-sided beans.
For over 15 years we have strived to provide you with the highest quality, craft roasted specialty coffees from around the world. All coffee is manually roasted, never "burned". Try us, you'll like us!
Overlooking the beautiful Sierra Valley near Frenchmens Lake is where we roast coffees from all over the world.
Roasting is done in small batches which allows us to have a quality focused roast bringing out the optimum flavor of the different origins that we offer. The great taste will prove itself in each cup you drink. If you enjoy life and coffee like we do then the few cents more per cup from what you are drinking now for this type of specialty coffee is well worth it.
We appreciate a superb cup of coffee whether we are at home or at a coffee shop and that is why we started roasting coffee over a decade ago; we know that others have this appreciation as well. When you have perfected something you love the next step is to share it with others.
We invite you to share this wonderful experience and become part of our coffee community!
