The cup: Savory and smooth with citric acidity and cocoa flavor.
Our Kitamu offerings come to us from more than 100 smallholder members of the Heyza AMCOS in Tanzania’s Mbozi region. The majority of the contributing smallholder producers maintain farms that are less than 1 hectare and deliver freshly-picked cherries daily throughout the harvest season. Once the washing station has collected enough cherries for processing that day, the cherries are sorted and pulped, fermented for up to 72 hours, washed with clean water, graded, and moved to raised beds for drying. This AMCOS was founded in the early 2000’s and today, provided members with fertilizers and small loans to help support better production.
