Two farms on the slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater. (Two wildly different flavours of coffee.) One ethos of sustainability and stewardship. Heritage and innovation combine on the Edelweiss and Finagro coffee farms, bringing decades of family farming experience to bear through invention and originality. We are creating bold, smooth, aromatic flavours and experimenting with new, complex original blends which break the traditional coffee mold and give our customers a taste of the new normal. A deep love of the land, an affinity with the local communities and a special appreciation for the African wildlife who visit the farms daily is at the core of our operations. We recognise the importance of preserving and carefully managing this wild, spectacular landscape to ensure the farms will operate for generations to come, and we continue to coexist with the elephants and buffalo into the future. We want our customers to know that sustainability, quality, ingenuity and reliability are much more than words; they embody our personality and existence, making every aspect of Edelweiss and Finagro, a true coffee safari. We are a family business. Our business only thrives because of the hard work of our employees and the loyalty of our customers. Honesty, integrity, reliability and humility are the foundation of all our relationships and a direct representation of who we are. We work to build trust and confidence and are proud that over many years relationships have become friendships, with a feeling of working towards a sustainable future together. At Edelweiss and Finagro Estates we aspire to be a major global coffee supplier, harnessing the power of experience, pedigree and passion with invention and originality to produce unique, bold coffees. We are stewards of our land, local communities and African wildlife and farm in harmony with nature to ensure a truly sustainable, new future for Tanzanian coffee. We strive to protect the land, farm in harmony with the African wildlife and provide for the local communities into the future while producing exceptional coffee. Through harnessing our heritage and generations of experience and embracing innovation and experimentation, our mission is to embody sustainability in all we do.
All coffees are grown at an altitude of between 1600 and 1850 metres. This makes our farms amongst the highest in Tanzania. The coffee is rain fed due to scarcity of available water. The extreme variations in the farms' topography, the different varieties of coffee grown and the abundance of micro-climates all give our coffee a unique and complex cupping profile.
In the cup this coffee offers a complexity of flavours of raspberries, blueberries and forest fruits with lingering citrus and a dark chocolate finish.
This coffee is lightly roasted and works well as both espresso and filter.
