Tamu - Tanzanian
We love this coffee! Tanzania is renowned for its high grown, fruit packed offerings so this coffee stood out a mile on the cupping table when we were sampling. Due to the beans being several different types of arabica varietal the cup see's a range of flavours balancing against a subtle back drop of fruit that we come to expect from Tanzanian coffee.
After several trials of different roasting approaches we found the sweet spot. We tasted notes of maple cream and vanilla carried over in a creamy, rich mouthfeel with a lasting sweetness we haven't seen in other Tanzanian coffees before. As the cup cools the sweet notes of maple come to the fore with a light vanilla aftertaste. This is one to savour
