Tanzanian Finagro Plantations Honey - NEW

This coffee is one of two coffees we have from the Finagro Planations in northern Tanzania. It is located in the Oldeani area on the slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater, which is the world's largest intact volcanic crater, a UNESCO world heritage site and a haven for scores of wildlife including elephants, rhinos, lions and numerous anetelope.

The first occupiers on the farm were German settlers. Between 1926 and 1931 they planted coffee on Ascona, one of the two farms of  Finagro, the other being Edelweiss. During the second world war the German settlers were interned and the farms were taken over by the British Authorities, and Mr BN Vohora oversaw the operations for the British Administration. After the war the farms were sold to an American Multinational in the 1950s, and in 1969 Mr BN Vohora bought the Ascona and Edelweiss farms. Since then three generations of the same family have nurtured and expanded these farms to develop truly exceptional coffee.

The farms are located high up on the edge of the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Both farms border the Ngorongoro forest, which comprises entirely of indigenious trees and bushes and is home to the fantastic wildlife. The family maintain bush land areas for the widlife and tree cover throughout the farms, and ensure their farming has minimal impact on the incredible wildlife.

Finagro Plantations Honey is from the Edelweiss farm and is 'Honey Processed'. This is where the cherries are de-pulped, but allowed to dry without washing. Some of the fruit is left on the coffee bean, but not as much as in the natural process. Most of the cherry has been removed but the remaining residue is a golden, sticky mucilage which is reminiscent of honey, hence the name. This gives the coffee a fruitiness and sweetness, but not as much as the natural/dry process. When processing, the cherries on this farm are fermented inside sealed vessels in the absence of oxygen for 6-7 days. The fermentation process is interrupted when the vessel starts to foam. After that the coffee is pulped, and later sundried on raised beds. 

This coffee is Medium-Dark roasted so can be brewed as a Filter/Cafetiere, or brewed in a Bean-to-Cup Machine, and as a mild Espresso. The Flavour Notes are Red Berries, Honey, & Orange; Syrupy with mild acidity.
