Malawi solely grows Arabica beans. Malawi Mzuzu AA is characterised by a creamier flavour and a thicker body than you would typically find in the other African coffees we stock, and with a soft and rich flavour with a fruity aroma.

Like in Central and South America, organisations in Africa have been trying to improve the wages and living conditions of coffee farmers so that they can support themselves. The Mzuzu Coffee Planters Cooperative Union is such an organisation, which also invests in infrastructures in the local community. Comprised of 3,000 members, of which 25% are women, it represents 6 cooperatives: Misuku Hill along the Songwe River, which forms a natural boundary between Malawi and Tanzania; Phoka Hills, Viphya hills, Nkhatabay highlands overlooking Lake Malawi, South East Mzimba and Ntchisi East.  This means that Malawi Mzuzu AA is grown in a range of microclimates, offering a variety of tastes.

In Malawi, beans are sorted by size to allow a more even roasting. The code ‘AA’ indicates the largest sie of beans. This medium roast will make a flavoursome mild espresso and can be used with filters and cafetières. In taste, it is most similar to Tanzanian coffee but a bit less fruity and with a fuller body.

Grown at altitudes of 1,200-2,000 meters above sea level

Harvested between June and September

Milled by washing and sun-drying on raised beds

Has the aroma of stone fruit, berries and citrus

Did you realise: our coffee packs are always 250 grams, not 225 grarms as is often the case with mass market coffee.
