In our roastery in Dar es Salaam, the freshly delivered green beans from the Utengule Farm are processed into premium roasted coffee. In our Probat drum coffee roaster, batches of 52 kgs are roasted every 20 minutes. Afterwards, the beans are packed and delivered to our customers.

 

The roasting of coffee started in 2005. At the time, domestic coffee consumption and the development of Gastronomy in Tanzania began to grow rapidly. The focus at the Dar es Salaam-based roastery is on product and service quality. The roastery team is highly skilled and roasts coffee to perfection.

 

It is our ambition to obtain the best possible roast coffee profiles through a careful roasting process. We are determined to create something that enhances the natural flavour of our beans, allowing us to get the best out of them.

Rift Valley coffee, pure arabica beans form Utengule Coffee farm

Rift Valley

This coffee is a pure Arabica from Utengule farm, made of grade "A" beans. Utengule coffee displays a full body (coffee-ness), fine citric acidity and undertones of blackberry. These characteristics are associated with high-grown coffee from the region and are desirable for gourmet-type coffee.

Utengule belongs to the highest-quality coffees in the world, and typical export markets are Europe, Japan, and the United States. Utengule grows mainly traditional Arabica varieties of Bourbon origin under mixed shade. Thanks to sustainable cultivation practices (shade, recycling of organic material, balanced nutrition), the soils are still very fertile despite 100 years of coffee cultivation.

 

Arabica: 100%

 

Comes in 350 grams tins or 500 grams gusset bags   

 
Zanzibar Coffee made from high-quality Robusta

Zanzibar Coffee

Zanzibar coffee contains many of the attributes of Rift Valley coffee, but it has more body due to the addition of some high-quality Robusta from the Lake Victoria region. Liberica comes from Zanzibar island and adds special spicy notes to this unique blend. It is a reflection of Zanzibar with its famous spice culture.

 

Arabica: 75%

Robusta: 20%

Liberica: 5%

 

Comes in 350 grams tins or 500 grams gusset bags

Tanzania Café

This fine coffee was created especially for the palate of our discerning Tanzanian customers, who enjoy the combination of the elegant flavours and acidity of highland Arabica as well as the strong and full body of Robusta from the Lake Victoria region. We raised the Robusta portion to 40%, making it a truly punchy coffee. Tanzania Café makes a great cup of coffee as traditional filter coffee but moreover as an excellent Espresso or Cappuccino.

 

Arabica: 60%

Robusta: 40%

 

Comes in 500 grams gusset bags

Africas_wildest coffee of Pea-Berry

Africa's wildest

Africa's Wildest consists of Pea-Berry or also called "Pearls". These are round instead of the usual flat beans. It develops when only one ovum is fertilized; therefore only one bean fills the coffee cherry.

Premiums are paid for this coffee because some roasters are convinced of the particularly good roast quality of this bean type. Only about 8 to 10% of our production are pearls; therefore, this coffee is particularly rare. The aspect and cup are excellent.

 

PB Arabica: 80%

Robusta: 20%

 

Comes in 350 grams tins or 500 grams gusset bags   

Kifaru

Kifaru is made of pure superior Robusta beans grown by smallholders near Lake Victoria. This hand-picked, dry-processed and sun-dried coffee produces a very strong cup with a robust, yet round, full-bodied flavour. It is the choice of the coffee drinkers, who prefer less acidity but more caffeine and strength in their beverage. It is indeed “irresistibly strong”.

Robusta: 100%

Comes in 500 grams /1 kg gusset bags
