Magwila AMCOS a group of smallholders located in the Mbozi district of southern Tanzania. The main season here runs from the end of May to July, with trees flowering between September and October.
AMCOS stands for agricultural and marketing cooperative society. The Magwila AMCOS is one of the smaller groups, comproised of 59 farmers who produce about 120 bags of coffee per year.
These farmers tend to the high yielding Kent variety but a combination of older trees, frequent droughts and lack of irrigation in the area means production here is extremely low. On average, just 43 bags are produced by this group annually. Production may be small but the quality here is fantastic, showcasing what we love most about Tanzanian coffees.
We selected this coffee is because of its intense berry notes, which formed a flavour profile unlike anything we’ve tasted before in Tanzania.
Espresso: 1:2 coffee to water, extracted in 28-32 secs
Filter: 60-65g coffee per litre of water, brewed for 3-4 mins
Roast & despatch days are currently Monday to Friday. All orders placed after midnight on Thursday will be roasted and despatched on Monday.
We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don’t label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of our coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
