The Mania of Tanzania

Quality: 
5

Tanzanian coffees can be a more balanced version of neighboring Kenya, which is loaded with top end, bright acidity. Tanzanias can also be high-toned, but the acidity is usually more integrated into the cup flavors, less dominant, while fruited notes and body play a greater role in the overall cup character.

It's Sumatra Time!

Coffee is a crop. It may seem odd to think of coffee this way since it is also a dried seed from a small fruiting tree. And we don't think about the crop cycle of other dried seeds on our kitchen shelves. But there is a particular window of time when a new crop of coffee arrives at the Oakland port (a mere 5 minutes from our shop) and all the good coffee buyers are on the hunt for the best lot.
