About the bean

Our Zimbabwe AA comes to us from the Salimba Estate in eastern Zimbabwe. Salimba Estate replants each of their fields in 7-8 year cycles to permit the harvesting of cherries from young, largely disease-free trees. Coffee here is hand-picked, washed and sun-dried.

This is a very unique offering. High in acidity and body. Notes of lemon and liquorice.

Roast recommendation: Medium. Refer to our roasting guide here.
