This community lot represents coffees from two farm cooperatives, Usongwe, which has approximately 520 farmer members, and Shiviwaka, with approximately 250 members. • The average size of these farmers’ farms is between 0.5 and 1.5 hectares (Basically, between 1 and 4 acres.) These producers are mostly subsistence farmers who rely on coffee production as their main income, though they also grow bananas, beans and maize and keep chickens, goats and cows. • The Mbeya region is known as the Southern Highlands, due to its altitude. It receives a plentiful rainfall, has an extended dry season and has fertile, deep red volcanic soils. • The lot was selected for its superior cupping profile. It has a green-tea-like flavor and a complex citric acidity that’s unique to that part of the country. The pre-shipment sample scored an 85.25.
