Plantation coffee (Ngila) from the Karatu region in the state of Tanzania.
The plantation, located at the foot of the Ngorongoro crater, has been able to innovate itself since 1990, with new irrigation systems and new methods and tools for processing.
The water used comes from the Endoro river allowing proper nourishment of the plants, making this coffee among the most interesting in the country.
The beans are washed in the traditional method; after having stripped the cherry it is fermented for 12-18 hours and then dried on African beds, raised and ventilated beds which allow uniform drying of the bean.
The cup we get is very particular, like all washed African coffees we have an important acidity even if the aromas of berries such as black currant and blueberry are vivid and distinct giving a pleasant sweetness both in espresso and in filter.
