Amongst the rolling hills of the Songwe region of Tanzania, a partnership between the Mkulima Kwanza coop and Keremba and Mkunde’s Communal Shamba processing center is making waves. In just its fourth year of operation, this co-lab has lifted the coops’ coffee out of commodity, supported a regional health clinic and seen a 30x increase in specialty export – including this lot. Appropriately translating as ‘Unity’, the Umoja lot is offering this year a refined depth of sweetness, from dried plum candy, stewed fruit, and hawthorn berry.
