Utengule Coffee Farm

HOME TO THE FAMOUS RIFT VALLEY GOURMET COFFEES

On the edge of the East African Rift Valley, at the foot of the Mbeya range in Southern Tanzania, lies a region renowned for growing coffee. Warm summers and fresh winters combined with seasonal rains create the perfect conditions for coffee cultivation. And here the famous Rift Valley Coffee has its origins, grown on the Utengule Coffee Estate 1'400 metres above sea level.

 

The Bourbon varieties grown on Utengule Estate are renowned for their smooth flavour, full body and fine acidity. The soil is organic and rich in minerals originating from volcanic eruptions millions of years ago. Clear mountain streams cross the estate from which coffee fields are irrigated after the long dry seasons, and its water also serves to wash coffee during harvest.
