Tasting Notes: Stewed stone-fruit, red currant with soft milk chocolate body that lingers
Amongst the rolling hills of the Songwe region of Tanzania, a partnership between the Mkulima Kwanza coop and Keremba and Mkunde’s Communal Shamba processing center is making waves. In just its fourth year of operation, this co-lab has lifted the coops’ coffee out of commodity, supported a regional health clinic and seen a 30x increase in specialty export – including this lot. Appropriately translating as ‘Unity’, the Umoja lot is offering stewed stonefruit, tart red currant and a soft milk-choc body that lingers.
