Tanzanian AA coffee is grown mainly on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, not far from the border Kenyan border, under the shade of intercropping banana trees. The coffee is produced predominantly by small farms in volcanic soil at approximately 1700 metres above sea level.

The coffee fruit begins its' life cycle after the sporadic rain showers of November and December which bring on the coffee blossom; crops then develop from bud to cherry over the next six months. The low morning and night-time temperatures of this altitude, slow and lengthen the ripening period allowing ample time for the cherries to develop. Some of the coffee plants are over ninety years old, with their roots deep into the soil in search of nutrients. All of the coffee is handpicked.

The Tanzania AA is generally a fruity coffee with great crisp acidity and a smooth chocolate finish. It is light and bright in flavour with a medium body and subtle fruity sweetness.
