Songwa Estates farm is situated in Southern Tanzania about 1450masl.
The 25.000 coffee trees grown are of Bourbon varieties.
In the city of Mbeya the green coffee is separated from the parchment and screened for size.
This is the final step before the bags hit the road from the curing factory to the harbour of Dar es Salaam.
The paperwork for export is done in Dar es Salaam; meanwhile the green coffee is stored.
From the departure of the ship it takes around five weeks until it reaches the harbour of Hamburg, Germany.
An important milestone is reached when the green coffee is bought by a roaster and roasted to perfection.
Careful craftsmanship prepares the ground for a sensory experience.
Preparing a great coffee relies on the complex knowledge to adjust the grinder according to the beans.
Striving for even particle distribution is a key element on the way to the perfect preparation.
The harmonious ensemble of perfect pressure, filtered water and ground coffee reveals a wide range of flavours.
It is the hard work and commitment of many that finds its final destination in the cup.
Many careful steps are taken to compose a product we enjoy every day.
Awareness of the long way from tree to cup helps to truly appreciate coffee.
We love to be a part of this journey.
