This Tanzanian coffee is an extremely balanced, unsophisticated cup of coffee. It’s absolutely delicious to drink, and not at all confrontational or demanding. Throw some cream and sugar in, and this coffee holds its flavor well. Great for large crowds and picky coffee drinkers alike.
The Heights Coffee Estate is located in Karatu region, not far from the city of Arusha. The farm was planted in the 1930s on the southern edge of the Ngororero Crater, and benefits from nutrient rich volcanic soil. Most of the coffee planted at Heights Estate is called “N39”, an older Bourbon type selected for high yield by the Tanzanian Coffee Research Institute around the time Heights was established. They only process coffee using the wet process method, depulping coffee cherry, fermenting under water in tanks, washing in clean water, and then drying on raised tables. “AA” refers to the grade and bean size, these being the largest, and generally commanding a higher premium.
