Flavor notes: dark chocolate, caramel, citrus, papaya, dried apricot

In Swahili, “usawa” means balance and “kahawa” means coffee. The Usawa Kahawa Project is all about gender equality, and was established in 2021 by Taylor Winch, our importer’s sister company in Tanzania. The project’s goal is to make sure women are involved in farming coffee and bringing it to market. Its two main pillars are: 1) empowering gender champions and gender action learning systems and 2) growing coffee production in Tanzania through training women and establishing new farms.

The project works with the Hezya Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Society (AMCOS) in the Mbozi region of Tanzania. AMCOS manage 95% of the country’s coffee production, and smallholders must be registered to an AMCOS to qualify for support in production, processing, storage, transport, marketing, and government aid. Without membership, their raw green coffee would have no way of reaching the global market.

This washed AA-grade lot comes from smallholders in the Mbozi and Songwe regions of Tanzania. In the cup, this coffee is outstanding! Enjoy a medium body, bright acidity, and tasting notes of dark chocolate, caramel, citrus, dried apricot and papaya (to name just a few)!
