Malawi - Mzuzu

from 5.00

This coffee was awarded a Bronze medal in the Single-Origin Espresso category at the 2018 Golden Bean coffee competition in Portland, OR!

Another year, another amazing harvest from the Mzuzu Cooperative! Comprised of six smaller coffee-growing cooperatives (Misuku, Phoka, Viphya North, Nkata Bay Highlands, South East Mzimba & Ntchsisi), the Mzuzu Cooperative continues to produce exceptional coffee year after year. This is the third straight harvest we’ve purchased from the Mzuzu Cooperative, and we couldn’t be happier to have this coffee back on the shelf.

The Mzuzu Coffee Planters Cooperative Union is located in northern Malawi, near the southern border of Tanzania. The northern hills of Malawi receive plenty of rainfall, and the influence of Lake Malawi (the 9th largest lake in the world) helps to maintain a moderate climate with excellent soil conditions. 

Our fourth lot from Mzuzu showcases a familiar profile from previous years: a rich syrupy body balanced with subtle citrus notes and a Kenyan-like spice. In this full-bodied lot, we taste juicy fruit punch and coconut with a sweetness reminiscent of an oatmeal cookie.
