Our Take

This our first time bringing in a dried-in-fruit natural from Tanzania. This coffee showcases a complex and balanced profile immediately reminding us of a cascara tisane supporting a flavor cast of loganberry, brown sugar, starfruit, and Concord grape.

From our importing partner Genuine Origin:

Only around 5% of Tanzania green coffee is grown on large estates, and GDM Farm is one of the very few Tanzanian-owned properties in the Mbozi area. The farm is situated at an altitude of 1980ms! in the southern highlands near the Mbozi meteorite that was discovered in the 1930s.

The Grivas family purchased GDM in 2000, and Richard Grivas. son of the estate’s founding father, now supervises the farm. For the past 20 years CDM has employed over 200 seasonal workers and supported local smallholders in the surrounding area. Richard has his sights on taking coffee quality a step further with unusual processing methods rarely applied to Tanzania coffee. This natural or dry process green coffee offers roasters a taste of what Tanzania has to offer.

GDM spans 400 hectares and primarily cultivates Bourbon and compact coffee trees: Cherries are hand-picked and hand- sorted for ripeness, then dried on raised beds for around 21 days. There is also a dry mill on the estate where workers deliver dried cherries for further processing.
