Malawi Misuku Hills Mzuzu
The Mzuzu Coop is dedicated to producing beautiful coffee while uplifting the living standards of its 3,000 smallholder member farmers. Many of the growers come from families who have been in the coffee business since the 1930s, and a quarter of the farmers are women. Mzuzu is Fair Trade certified, and its commitment to ensuring access to adequate housing and decent education affects entire families. Fortunately, the coffee could not be in better hands, nor could it come from better land. Growing in the highlands of Malawi, near the border of Tanzania in the Misuku Hills, the elevation, pristine forests, and placid climate make for beautiful cherry. The farmers’ attention to detail turns the coffee into an unforgettable cup. Complex with earthy and bright notes, it is round in the mouth—a full revolution from dark chocolate to toasted coconut.
