The 61 members of the Iganda group within AMCOS coffee cooperative grow coffee produced this washed AA grown in the highlands of southwest Tanzania in the region north of Lake Malawi and south of Lake Rukwa.
Silky smooth, clean as can be with awesome depth of flavor. A bit higher acidity at the lighter roasts but comes off very balanced in the cup tones. Citric lemony brightness with a little hint of soft fruit notes balancing with a complex chocolaty undertone with just the right amount of classic herbal African spice. Light roasts although tasty and clean, are much more extreme with the acidity and herbal spice notes. A strong medium roasts mellows greatly into a more chocolaty profile with still identifiable jazzy notes. Dark roasts turn much more traditional with some smoky bakers chocolate tones.
We like this coffee best at a medium roast. Great balance, not to extreme in any of its tones and a cup everyone will love. Lighter or darker will be good to experiment with but will depend on personal taste preference. Be in for a tasty treat. Try extending the roast at the light to medium roast points to build a little more body and undertones.
