In local Bantu languages, Mutwari translates as "chief", and this coffee certainly lives up to that title with a unique blend of flavours - a result of the rich volcanic soil it's grown in.
Mutwari hails from the Mbeya region, hidden in the southern mountain ranges and grown by smallholder farming groups.
Tanzania hasn't always been as highly profiled for specialty coffee as other East African nations, and the majority of the regions coffee was historically home-washed due to the lack of commercial washing stations.
However, the Chief is now on the rise. Get a taste of this delicious coffee today!
The quality of the beans is superb. You can pick up the subtle notes and it makes a great espresso.
