One of the best tasing coffees we have tasted in a very time at Beans HQ, a firm favourite.

Roaster note:

Coffee has been grown on Sable Farm in Southern Malawi for over 30 years alongside dairy and macadamia nuts. Sable Farming Company Ltd. is the only existing incorporated coffee producer in Malawi.

Just a little smaller than Mississippi, Malawi is a landlocked country and yet is home to over 400 miles of lakefront land. One-third of Malawi is taken up by Lake Malawi, one of the world’s deepest lakes, reflecting the altitudes that borders its shores. Coffee first came to Malawi in 1878 and was grown by both local farmers and Europeans, but production and exports were nominal until the 1950’s when the government distributed seeds in an effort to encourage an increase in cash crops for export. This effort was primarily focused on farmers in the northernmost highlands on the border with Tanzania, the “Misuku Hills.” Enough small farmers started growing coffee that in 1957 they formed the Misuku Coffee Growers Cooperative Society, which is still in operation today.
