Zimbabwe, formerly known as lower Rhodesia until independence in 1980, has produced great coffee since production was introduced in the 1960s. Like Zambians, these coffees are often overshadowed by great East African coffee from Kenya. But they can also have great balance, complexity, body and finesse. But note that not all do! It sometimes takes some rigorous cupping to find truly great estate Zimbabwe as there is an abundance of lesser non-estate coffees in US warehouses. We have had difficulty finding Zimbabwe coffee that has a clean cup character, hence the drought in offering it at SM.
