Tanzania was one of our first coffees almost 20 years ago. We are thrilled to have it back. This is a peaberry, meaning there is only one bean in each cherry. The bean is generally smaller and more round. Since peaberries are an anomaly, they are hand selected out of the larger crop. Since estate coffees are grown by one group, the landmass is generally smaller and more defined than a co-op. (Co-ops are comprised of 100’s or 1000’s of small growers that can spread across vast terrain.) The Nitin Estate is in the Arusha region of Tanzania, benefiting from the rich volcanic soils of the Ngorongoro Crater.
About Our Coffee
Certified organic coffee is produced according to sustainable practices, without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or other harmful agrochemicals. In order for a coffee to be certified organic, the farm must undergo evaluation from an independent certifying agency. The U.S. has its own organic standards, requiring a roasting facility to be annually inspected and certified in order to be labeled ’organic.’
Fair Trade USA enables sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry and the earth. We achieve our mission by certifying and promoting Fair Trade products.
A traditional farming method in which coffee trees are grown alongside other crops under a canopy of taller trees. The mixture of vegetation prevents erosion and protects the coffee from harsh weather. Shade grown farms also provide vital wildlife habitat.
