Zambia - Mbuni Anniversary Coffee
Why you’ll love it: A heavy body and wine-like sweetness sets this very rare Zambian coffee apart. Truly one of our favorites.
Story of the bean: Todd personally visited this farm to find coffee to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of La Colombe's founding. It will be - no doubt - the start of a long friendship and the coffee with which he returned is truly one of a kind.
This estate is one of the most innovative in Africa and has developed an irrigation system and unique processing techniques. The micro-climate allows the coffee cherries to fully dry on the tree before being picked. Drying the coffee in this way produces a cup with a concentrated wine-like sweetness and heavy body that we have never tasted before.Shop here
