"A deeply pleasing Tanzania cup, multi-layered and complete — richly sweet, deeply savory, spice-toned and floral."

  • Set amid the plateaus and volcanic mountains of Tanzania's Southern Highlands, Mimba Estate is not far from the city of Mbeya. The area hosts multiple wildlife preserves and is home to one of Tanzania's most popular tourist attractions, the massive Mbozi Meteorite that fell to earth more than 1,000 years ago.

    Swiss immigrant Joseph Meila founded Mimba Estate in 1995. He initially planted about 250 acres and over the years has expanded the farm to almost 400 acres of coffee trees. During harvest the estate provides employment for more than 150 local residents. Meila believes increased coffee production could dramatically improve the region's economy, so he generously shares his expertise and knowledge with neighboring farmers.
