Kitamu means “sweet” in Swahili, and is used to describe a delicious taste, like this coffee, which is grown in the District of Karatu. Due to its proximity to the nearby volcanic Ngorongoro Crater, the area’s mineral-rich volcanic soil and shade provided by tall banana trees create ideal conditions for growing arabica coffee.

Small, independent, farms account for about 90% of Tanzania’s coffee production. Many farms have been damaged by large populations of buffalo and elephants. As a result, estate owners and farmers have spent a great deal of time in the last decade building game channels on their farms to allow large animals to safely pass through without interfering with coffee production.
