When you drink our Tanzania Mbeya Mwalyego you are supporting a new and exciting Specialty Coffee region. Mwalyego is a 150 member cooperative just outside Mbeya in Southern Tanzania, at 4700 - 5000 feet above sea level. Women play a strong role in management of the coop, including holding board positions, and their charismatic chairman, Edson, is a passionate and pragmatic leader. Thanks to the focused work of the coop members and the investments and training provided by Crop to Cup importers and their partners, the quality of the coffee is comparable to that of much more developed regions. The coop has decided to forego the additional expense of certifications at this time since they have a direct partner in Crop to Cup, which pays them a premium and fosters quality initiatives. In the future we will be seeing a lot more delicious coffee coming from this area, which will boost the local economy and the livelihood of the coop members.
