The process of getting green coffee from its place of origin to the United States can involve various expenses, including those related to the farm, shipping, and market factors. Our true purpose behind sharing the pricing information is to help our customers gain a broader understanding of the journey of our specialty coffee and fulfill our promise of transparency.
In Tanzania, Agricultural Marketing Cooperative Societies (AMCOS) manage 95% of the country’s coffee production. Smallholders must be registered to an AMCOS to qualify for support in production, processing, storage, transport, marketing, and government aid. Without membership, their raw coffee would have no way of reaching the global market.
The Hezya AMCOS started out with just 50 smallholder coffee growers. Thanks to strong leadership that supplies agronomic inputs and small loans, the AMCOS quickly grew to its current force of 295 members across the Haraka, Hezya, and Izumbi villages in the Mbozi region.
Around 90% of the Arabica coffee from Tanzania is wash processed at either an AMCOS CPU or at home with a hand pulper. Tanzania employs its own grading system, which shares similarities with the one used in Kenya. Grading factors in species, bean size, density, processing method, and cup characteristics. The scale ranges from AA (screen sizes 17 & 18), AB (15 & 16 screen), C (14 & 15 screen), and PB for peaberry. This highly coveted natural mutation occurs when, instead of two seeds, a larger and rounder single seed grows inside the coffee cherry.
We specialize in roasting Organic and/or Biodynamic coffees meticulously sourced through ethical practices that prioritize transparency, sustainability, and purity. Our commitment ensures that our coffee beans are free from pesticides, herbicides, and any other chemicals that could compromise the natural growth of the coffee plants.
