From the country formerly known as upper Rhodesia, and now named for the Zambezi River, Zambian coffees range from Kenya-like brightness, to subtle, balanced coffees with complexity and body. Zambia has variable quality: it has the potential to be outstanding (which is why we offer particular lots when we find an excellent coffee), and it can be very off-tasting and defective (which is why we're usually out of stock for long stretches).
Coffee was introduced in the 1950's with cultivar seedstock from Tanzania and Kenya. It is grown mainly in the Northern district of the Muchinga Mountains (regions of Nakonde, Kasama and Isoka) and in the vicinity of the capital city of Lusaka.
