Sugar plums dance in our heads when we think of this cup, along with a nice cedar spiciness that gives a cozy feel to this sweet coffee. Our first taste of a natural Tanzanian. We’re grooving on it.
Ngila Estate was established in Karatu in the early 1900s by a German landowner, which was typical to the establishment of large estates during the German colonial period. The farm eventually transferred to British ownership after World War II when the country became a British-led United Nations Trust Territory. In 1990, the estate was sold to Rudolph Meyer, whose family still owns the land today. The 100-hectare farm has since been upgraded with modern irrigation and processing facilities.

"A little sour/fruity and the plum and grape was noted right off. It was a suprisingly smooth finish. I can't wait to try more varieties from Velton's. Brewed in my chemex with distilled water." (5 out of 5)
"This roast is bomb-diggity. Smooth, rich, with a hint of spice. This was the perfect mug on a cold and foggy Seattle morning. The Aeropress especially brought out the notes of brown sugar to the foreground. Brew methods used : Aeropress, inverted. Espresso in La Pavoni Europiccola" (5 out of 5)
