This coffee is a true Kilimanjaro classic. Produced along the ridges of Africa’s highest mountain, this coffee comes from smallholders who belong to the Mamsera, Mahida and Kirwa Keni cooperative groups in the Kilimanjaro district. These co-ops deliver their coffee to the Rafiki Coffee Mill, which completes the production of nearly 60 percent of all coffee in northern Tanzania. The Kirwa Keni cooperative, in the Rombo district, was established in the 1980s as a member of the Kilimanjaro Native Co-operative Union (KNCU) the first and oldest co-op in Tanzania, dating to 1925. The Mamsera cooperative is renowned for producing some of the best coffees in the country.
