The Mafinga Hills in Zambia’s Northern Province are home to the country’s highest peaks, where altitude and ancient volcanic soils help produce the sweet citrus flavor profiles that characterize this single estate coffee.
You’ll find that the sharp acidic edge of East African coffees is often softened somewhat in their Zambian counterparts – making the latter perfect for those in search of a more restrained flavours. In the typical Zambian cup, you’ll find floral and citrus notes, with a twist of nuts or berries. The better specimens will give more unusual flavours, like cucumber, vanilla, maple and butter.
