Tanzania Peaberry Zanzibar is a premium blend from high grown estates in Southern Tanzania (Lunji, Utengule, and Kanji Lanji Estates) and Northern Tanzania (Mondul, Burka, Ngila, and Lyamungu Estates).
The Southern Estates are located in Mbozi and Mbeya, in the southern highlands of Tanzania. Although total production is usually less than 500 metric tons, the coffee from Utengule, Lunji and Kanji Lalji estates has a very good reputation. The Utengule coffee estate is a traditional, well-managed East African Coffee farm that produces an exquisite Arabica coffee. There is a large variety of rare trees and flowers growing on the farm as well as several rivers. By walking through the 500-acre coffee estate you can explore how coffee is being grown, harvested, and processed.
This farm was developed by Count Vottorio Davico di Quittengo in 1931 after a careful inspection of the fertile and uninhabited areas on the slopes of the Mondul mountains in Northern Tanganyika. He fell in love with East Africa after working briefly for the Central Africa Exploration Company in Uganda. After convincing his family in Italy to assist him in the purchase of the land, the Mondul Coffee Estate was founded. Count Davico died in 1983 and was buried at Mondul on the highest hill overlooking the estate. His two sons are now running the estate with the same entrepreneurial spirit and social commitment of their father. It has a total production of 1400kg/ha.
This farm was established in 1899 by German settlers and has continued as a coffee producing farm. The estate covers an area of 1500 acres with an annual production of 1000 metric tons. The estate is also home to the Arusha Coffee Lodge, which has coffee plantation tours, horseback riding, mountain biking, and nature trails.
This estate is situated in the Karatu District on the slopes of the Ngorongoro crater and is surrounded by the Ngila Forest reserve. It was founded in the 20th century by a German family and later taken over by British farmers after the WWII, who sold it to Ruldolf Meyer in 1990.
Lyamungu is located on the southern foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, approximately 15km from the Moshi/Arusha main highway. It was established in 1934 as a center for coffee research in Tanzania and is now leased to Mufindi.

Grind Type Guide
These days coffee shops are on every corner, but nothing is quiet as satisfying as brewing the perfect cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home. It saves money and you can make it just the way you like it. There are different types of grinds that go with the different types of coffee makers. I will go over all the grinds we offer.
French Press Grind
First off, we have your French Press. This process of brewing is an immersion. The grinds are immersed in the water together to extract that yummy goodness. A French Press is easy and makes a delicious cup of coffee. The grinds are coarse. The beans should be ground in a burr grinder versus the blade grinder. When using a French Press, you will just need water, coffee, and the press. You measure out the grounds: 2 Tablespoons of coffee to 8 ounces water. Boil the water. Add the grounds and water into the press and let the coffee steep. After about 4 minutes is up, press down on the top of the press. Press slowly. It will separate the grinds and you are now ready to pour and drink.
The French Press Grind is perfect for making Cold Brews too. You just need some water, a mason jar, and time to get this Cold Brew creation to come to life. Pick any coffee in this grind to try out a cold brew. Once you have your base, add milk or water to dilute and enjoy the rush! You can also use the Percolator Grind for Cold brew as well. It is a little bit course. You can play around with the grind to see which suits you best.
Next up, the auto drip machine. This is the Bunn or the Mr. Coffee pot. We call this the Standard Grind. This is the most widely used grind. If you use the trusty ole "coffee pot" then this is a process of running the water through the coffee grounds to create the magic we call coffee. The standard grind is medium-coarse. This is what is sold at most groceries stores and is most used. Also, this grind can be used in a Siphon coffee machine.
Espresso grind is exactly that. It should be used for the Espresso machine and the Moka pot method. If you have an espresso machine at home, this is what you want to use. These grinds are fine in texture. Espresso is a delicate process. If this is your choice of coffee, you can perfect your method how you choose.
Turkish may be your method of brewing. This is a very delicious way to take your morning coffee. You will need your favorite Ibrik, 3 oz of water, a spoon of sugar and a stove. Once you add these together, let it foam up 3 times and it is ready to pour. This grind is very fine, almost a powder. Beautiful brewing method and is the oldest to date. We use stoves now versus the hot sand to heat the coffee.
Classic Drip Grind
Lastly, we have the Classic Drip Grind. It is a medium-coarse grind that works for coffee methods of brewing by Chemex or a pour over. These are both great ways to brew your coffee grinds. When doing this use a burr grinder to ensure it does not get too fine and pass through the filter with these methods.
These are just a few different types of grinds that are most popular, and what we carry at Trvl Love Koffe. The type you choose should depend on the machine you will use. Therefore, it matters. The best cup comes from getting the right grind. We suggest you get whole bean and grind it your way as you use it. This ensures a fresher coffee we always suggest that you order whole bean but understand everyone does not have a home coffee grinder. Whichever option you choose, it is all coffee and we approve!
