STORYarticle-shape

Our newest Tanzania features a bang of bright notes with persimmons, sweet-tart candies and cherry tomatoes which we love from our African varietals. If we did not say it, you might think it was a Kenya.

The Shilanga Agricultural Marketing Cooperative and Society (AMCOS) was founded on August 6, 1993, though back then it only received home-processed parchment from its members. In 2013, however, the group purchased a Penagos pulper and began producing washed coffees that have continued to increase in quality.

A total of 193 farmers from the villages of Shilanga, Shomola, Welu, Igale and Ichesa contributed to this lot. During the harvest, they delivered cherries throughout the afternoon, and the AMCOS would pulp from early evening through midnight. After pulping, the beans were sorted using washing channels and then fermented without water for 24 to 36 hours. After this, they were washed in the washing channels—with water from the Ruanda River—soaked for 8 hours and then dried on raised beds for between 7 and 14 days. In 2019, the AMCOS received a Penagos ecopulper which reduces wastewater and enhances quality. Looking ahead, it is working toward building new drying tables.

Klatch Coffee Roasting is committed to working with coffee farmers

who are true artisans of coffee cultivation and practice their craft with a dedication, passion and skill. Klatch works with, and offers their support to, these skilled producers for the sole purpose of presenting only the highest-quality artisan roasted coffee...

Mike Perry believes there are a number of critical factors contributing to the growth of a truly exceptional coffee, and that farmers are one of the key factors. Therefore he believes those who do the best work should get the best price; he does not believe in coffee subsidies.

Klatch Coffee believes working with these farmers to deliver the highest-quality coffees requires that they listen, learn, cup, and give feedback in their creation...

Mike believes that a coffee farmer who grows an award-winning coffee is an artisan and should be given his due. Recognition develops dedication to craftsmanship, skill for production and passion for the harvest quality.

Klatch Coffee Roasting believes that great artisan roasted coffee is inherently produced through sustainable methods. They therefore only work with farmers who think long and hard about economic, social, and environmental conditions of their farms and communities. Sustainable does not have to mean organic, but it certainly could.

Klatch seeks to deliver the highest possible return to farmers and therefore require their importers, exporters, cooperatives and farmers to agree upon the financial distribution prior to harvest and act transparently in the execution of distribution, allowing Klatch Coffee to monitor the committed delivery price to the farmers.
