On the edge of the East African Rift Valley, at the foot of the Mbeya range in Southern Tanzania, lies a region renowned for growing coffee. Warm summers and fresh winters combine with rich soils and seasonal rains to create the perfect conditions for cultivation.
And it is here that the famous Rift Valley Coffee has its origins, grown on the Utengule Coffee Estate 1,500 metres above sea level.
The Bourbon varieties grown on Utengule Estate are renowned for their smooth flavour, full body and fine acidity ? the unique flavour in part due to the soil.
Rich in minerals and nutrients brought from deep below ground through volcanic eruptions and hot springs over millions of years, the estate is crossed by Clear Mountain streams used to irrigate the avenues of bushes after the dry season and wash the coffee beans during harvest time.
