Quick Overview

The Usingini Farm is a sustainable development project which began in 2011 on land owned by the Mzuzu Co-operative union. The farm has planted 364,000 trees on 70ha of land with a target of over 600,000 by the 2019/20 season. Their intention is to provide a demonstable model for sustainable coffee farming in developing communities.

This is a bright fruity coffee, as you'd expect from a natural processed African coffee, with notes of tropical fruit and plums. The acidity is bright with a smooth creamy body. Best as a brewed coffee on this one unless you like a bright fruity espresso.

Product Description

The Usingini Farm is a sustainable development project which began in 2011 on land owned by the Mzuzu Co-operative union. The farm has planted 364,000 trees on 70ha of land with a target of over 600,000 by the 2019/20 season. Their intention is to provide a demonstable model for sustainable coffee farming in developing communities. As well as coffee the farm is gearing up to produce tomatoes, potatoes & cabbages and has installed over 200 bee hives for honey production. A major aim of the project is to reinvest into local infrastructure such as roads, irrigation, housing, electricity, schooling and health facilities.

This coffee uses a natural process whereby ripe coffee cherries are carefully picked from the trees and further sorted by hand to ensure only the ripest red cherries are used. These cherries are then dried slowly of raised African beds for 35 to 40 days (depending on climatic conditions) and are turned frequently to ensure an even drying. Once the cherries have reached the desired moisture content they are sent to the dry mill for hulling & thorough handpicking before being bagged in GrainPro for export.

The speciality world has started to take note of Malawi, and their coffees are slowly getting the recognition they deserve. Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world with its economy based largely on agriculture, accounting for 90 percent of foreign exchange earnings, 40 percent of its GDP, and employs 80 percent of the workforce (Source: UN report 2005).

This is a bright fruity coffee, as you'd expect from a natural processed African coffee, with notes of tropical fruit and plums. The acidity is bright with a smooth creamy body. Best as a brewed coffee on this one unless you like a bright fruity espresso.
