In the past, Tanzanian coffee faced several hurdles. Farmers in the Mbeya region typically processed at home, with a depulping style akin to Indonesia’s wet hulling process. Unfortunately, this approach led to rapid aging of the coffees. The combination of less than ideal processing and unfavorable conditions at the hot, humid port city of Dar presented many challenges.

Thankfully, times have changed. Tanzanian coffee producers have embraced innovation, transitioning from the old depulping method to a clean washed process. This shift involves using Penagos ecopulpers and meticulously maintained clean washing channels, mirroring methods you’d find in coffee-producing regions like Kenya or Ethiopia. These investments in agronomic best practices combined with the unique varieties grown (mainly Kent, alongside hybrids and Bourbon mutations rarely found elsewhere) offer immense potential for specialty offerings out of Tanzania.

Excellent Coffee

Used to live in Chattanooga area and enjoyed going to Mayfly coffee to try all of the different varieties and roasts they offer. I moved to Detroit area and still order the coffee online when I can. Great place, great coffee, always freshly roasted, very reliable deliveries. Would recommend trying them all. Base camp is my favorite.

Hard to Find Better Coffee

I've never been disappointed by any Mayfly Coffee I've tried, but the Basecamp Tanzania might be the best they've roasted yet! Good strong flavor with nice fruity notes (like a Tanzania should be), but not too overpowering or bitter. Great way to start the day!
