Coffee from Tanzania for Espresso

The history of Tanzanian coffee dates back to the 16th century, when Robusta coffee would have been imported from Ethiopia. Coffee was initially chewed like tobacco after it was boiled and smoked. Nowadays over 90% of the coffee that is produced in Tanzania is grown by smallholder coffee farmers that use a cooperative washing station, however some of the best traceable coffees come from estates that have their own processing facilities.

Tanzanian coffee can differ fairly radically depending on where the coffee was grown. A coffee originating from the Kilimanjaro region can exhibit floral and subtle complexities that are not dissimilar to a washed Ethiopian. While a coffee grown in the Mbeya region can possess a more full bodied richer flavour.

We have a huge selection of both blended and single origin espresso coffees from artisan roasters. They range from espresso beans giving a luxurious crema and rich chocolatey, nutty flavours, thru to some lighter roasted beans that produce vibrant and bright espressos.

Use the filtering below to help you find the espresso coffees you are after.

We also have a Hand Picked selection with coffees that are fantastic as straight espressos or ideal in based milky drinks

We're coffee enthusiasts at heart and if you need some assistance in selecting your coffees we would love to help. Feel free to contact us at any time.
