Article: Monthly Special: Tanzania Peaberry Coffee

Written by Cafe Campesino on Oct 1, 2005 in Article, NEWSLETTER |

This month we are thrilled to offer a most special… well… special: Fair Trade, organic Tanzania Peaberry Coffee! We have a limited supply of this unusual coffee, so once it’s gone it may be a while before we get more. So be sure to order as soon as possible to get your dibs on this full-flavor, Full City roast! To receive your 10% off of the regular price, please use promotion code tanz05 when prompted at check-out or when you call in to order.

This month’s special is produced by the Kilimanjaro Native Cooperative Union (KNCU), which was founded in 1984 and became certified by FLO in 1993. Located in the northeast region of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, KNCU produces 600 containers of the Keint and Bourbon coffee varieties. Each year, the 80,000 members of KNCU elect delegates from their membership to develop and implement policies and programs for the large collective of indigenous farmers.

As a result of their Fair Trade coffee production, the members of KNCU have established a collective educational fund to help build and run schools for the farmers’ children, formed a cooperative bank to provide members with access to loans and other credit and savings programs, founded a coffee export marketing department so that they can sell more of their coffee directly, and invested in a comprehensive organic production program.

KNCU coffee is cultivated at an elevation of 850m – 1,500m, is wet-processed and dried in the sun. Their harvest season runs from July through January.
