ABOUT THIS COFFEE
This is a nice Zambia AAA/AA grade Rainforest Alliance certified coffee from two estates, Kateshi Estate and Isanya Estate, located in the Mafinga Hills subregion of Zambia's Northern Province. Kateshi Estate is located near the town of Kasama and has a total of 2,466 hectares, 773 of which are currently cultivated with coffee. Coffee grown on the estate is between 1,340 and 1,400 masl. Isanya Estate is comprised of 1,600 hectares and ranges from 1500-1600 masl. Coffee from both estates are milled at Kateshi and blended to create this unique offering.

ABOUT THE REGION
Although wet milling was introduced to the small holder coffee farmers of Mafinga thirty years ago, natural processing has been common throughout the region since the 1950’s, when commercial coffee production began in Zambia, home to the smoke that thunders. Long before Dr. Livingston arrived to name Victoria Falls after the queen, the people who had lived around this wonder of the natural world for generations had already named it more appropriately, “the smoke that thunders.” The falls thunder into the Zambesi River, which flows east toward Mozambique. But before the river crosses the border, take a left and head north up the Luangwa River. You’ll move through land rich in biodiversity, including the world’s largest concentration of hippos. As the river meanders and the altitude rises you will reach Mafinga plateau and Zambia’s largest coffee growing region which stretches all the way to the border with Tanzania.

    I first tried Modest coffee (the Collector) at the Farmers Market in Naperville and just loved the taste. So excited that I can continue to enjoy it in the fall and winter months as well! Great taste and flavor with mild citrusy undertones!
