Featured Roast: Salimba Estate

This week we move back to the African Continent, but almost as far south as one will find coffee grown commercially.

The Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe rise to 2,592 m (8,504 ft) with Mount Nyangani. The highest mountain in Zimbabwe. The local rainfall and altitude produce a region that has reputation for being able to grow a large number of products from stone fruit, to tea and coffee. The natural habitat is varied. Rolling open hills and lowlands to high altitude rain forest.

The Salimba Estate is near the town of Chipinge in the more southern reaches of the Zimbabwean high lands.

The coffee is graded AA Plus. A good flavour with a well balanced acidity leaning towards the sweeter side. A flavour that doesn’t slap you in the face………..more like it sneaks up on you from behind!
