The Mafinga Hills in Zambia’s Northern Province are home to the country’s highest peaks, where altitude and ancient volcanic soils help produce the bright and citrusy flavor profiles that characterize this AAA/AA graded RFA certified coffee. This vibrant and interesting coffee will bring to mind other East African coffees, yet it stands alone. Our approach with this coffee from Mafinga Hills was to get out of the way and let its naturally crisp, clean balance impress. We appreciate the work that Olam Specialty Coffee is doing in East Africa with their estates and platforms—always raising the bar in order to produce exceptional coffees like this one here. Try this Zambia as is to enjoy its brightness and clarity, or try pairing it with something sweet and crunchy and be surprised.
