Utengule is a traditional village at the foot of the mighty Mbeya range at about 1400 meters above sea level, flanking the Great East African Riftvalley to the north-east. The Utengule farm was named after that village and it is no coincidence that Missionaries started coffee cultivation on the slope of these mountains at the beginning of last century. Excellent climate with warm summer and fresh winter, rich volcanic soils and good seasonal rains all favor the production of an Arabica coffee of outstanding quality. Utengule grows traditional bourbon varieties, which are renowned for producing coffee of smooth flavor, full body and fine acidity. Due to the local climatic situation, all coffee is shaded with a variety of indigenous species as well as Grevillea and Albizzia…

In Tanzania, an estimated 450,000 smallholders are reliant on coffee (known locally as kahawa) for their livelihoods. This, in turn, supports around 4.5 million family members and labourers (11% of the country’s entire population). These small plots of 5 hectares of less produce almost 90% of the country’s entire production, the remainder is grown by co-operatives and on larger well-organised estates. Wild coffee species are still being discovered in Tanzania – most recently Coffea kihansiensis in the Udzungwa Mountains. Both Arabica (harvested July-December and wet processed) and Robusta (harvested April-November and processed using the natural method) are cultivated and the main growing areas are Mara, Kilimanjaro, Ruvuma, Mbeya, Kigoma, Arusha, Manyara, Bukoba and Kagera (where both Robusta and Arabica are grown) – though some regions are shrinking due to climate change and urban sprawl.

Cup notes: Citric fruits with cocoa hints, full body and long sweet and nutty aftertaste
