Most African coffees are named after a town, washing station or landmark. But kitamu is Swahili for sweet tasting. The name was chosen by our quality team in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, who were smitten by the flavors of this coffee. The producers of this coffee are mostly subsistence farmers who rely of coffee production as their main source of income. Most intercrop their coffees with banana trees, beans, avocado and maize and keep livestock such as chickens, goats and cows. Most also use locally made hand pulpers, wash and ferment the coffee in buckets, and then dry it on mats or small raised drying tables.
This coffee represents producers from across the northern-most part of the Kilimanjaro region
