This coffee is a blend of auction lots from the Southern highlands, Mbeya region. The altitude of this region is about 1300-1400m above sea level with average annual rainfall of 1100mm per annum. Producers are small scale farmers who have 200 to 500 coffee trees on their farms. Cherry is delivered immediately after it has been picked to nearby washing stations called CPUs after picking – Central Pulpery Units - where it is pulped, fermented, washed and then sun dried. Dry parchment is delivered to commercial millers in Mbeya and Mbozi where coffee is put in to various grades before being offered for sale through auction held weekly in Moshi.
